This course will explain how mindfulness, meditation and the development of compassion can help us make friends with stress, transforming it into food for spiritual growth. We will explore the root causes of both stress and happiness, as well as how to develop compassion and forgiveness. Through this we can learn how to relax into difficult situations so that they help us find deeper happiness and compassion for ourselves and others.
There will also be some information from neuroscience regarding the chemistry of stress in our brains and bodies, and research into the effects of meditation and its transformative power.

Gelong Thubten has considerable experience teaching these methods in companies, universities, schools, hospitals, prisons and social service organisations. He trains staff at the head offices of Google and Linkedin, as well as teaching meditation to medical students.


Course donations


Since January 2015 all our Dharma and meditation courses have been offered without a suggested course fee.


In the Buddhist tradition one practices generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given freely from the heart in appreciation of the Dharma.
