“Meditation opens you to the world of the mind.” 

This quotation by the inspirational Tibetan meditator and scholar, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, is the start of an amazing journey. It is also the opening line of Geshe Loden’s book, “Meditations on the Path to Enlightenment.”

A new introduction series, ‘Exploring the Nature of the Mind’ commences at 1.30pm on Sunday 14 July with Angela Scherma. The course will cover a wide range of Buddha’s teachings. 

Each subject is presented in practical terms with an emphasis on exploring our mind through meditation and enhancing our good qualities. 

Angela Scherma is a regular teacher at the Peaceful Land of Joy Meditation Centre, and a long-term student of Geshe Loden.
