Most people believe that to find happiness we should simply experience as much pleasure as possible while trying to avoid problems. The result of this unbridled pursuit of temporary sense pleasure is dissatisfaction, anxiety and confusion. Far from ever feeling truly happy and content, our uncontrolled desire binds us to an unfulfilling and meaningless life where suffering eventually catches up with us. Buddha revealed a different path, the path to deep mental peace.

The gateway to this path is renunciation—the wish to be truly free from every trace of suffering and dissatisfaction. On this course senior teacher and Australia’s National Spiritual Director, Gen Kelsang Rabten will explain renunciation, and give instructions for swiftly travelling the path to what Buddha called ‘Liberation’, the state beyond all sorrow. This is an essential weekend for anyone wishing to deepen their happiness beyond the sense pleasures of this life.

Deeper spiritual transformation occurs by taking spiritual instructions to heart in meditation. After Gen Rabten’s inspiring teachings, Gen Kelsang Dornying will guide us to the mind of a renunciate over four days of silent retreat.
