The Art of Positive Thinking - Public Talk
Sunday 8 April 2018
St George's Hall, Liverpool
Is your glass half full or half empty? Whether we experience a happy, meaningful life full of exciting challenges and opportunities for growth, or a stressful, unhappy life full of difficulties and problems, all depends on our way of thinking! Happiness and suffering are states of mind; with meditation, we can train ourselves to think positively and to maintain an authentic experience of inner peace, even in difficult situations, and discover the potential for lasting happiness and joy within our own minds.
Come and discover the Art of Positive Thinking! Everyone is welcome to join us at St George’s Hall for this special event.
The Special Guest Teacher for this event is Gen Kelsang Togden, a Buddhist monk and an international teacher of Modern Buddhism who is a close disciple of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Gen Togden has been practising meditation and Buddhism for nearly 25 years and has given Dharma teachings in five continents of the world. Gen Togden is greatly admired for his good example and known for his joy, clarity, warmth and inspirational teachings that easily touch our hearts.
