From Inner Peace to Outer Peace

From Inner Peace to Outer Peace

Tuesdays in January 2024, 6:30 – 7:45 pm

Collingwood Public Library

55 Ste Marie St, Collingwood, ON L9Y 0W6

A peaceful, loving heart creates a peaceful, harmonious world.

This sounds naive, but it points to a profound truth: that there is no actual world outside our perception of the world.

The world we see is perceived solely through our own individual lens; thus, if we change our mind we really do change the world of our own experience.

And because that world intersects with those of so many others – our family members, friends and others – its state affects everyone around us. 

The teachings and meditations offered in these classes are based on the booklet Prayers for World Peace written by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

Inspired to change our own inner world and thereby to move the minds of others in a peaceful direction, we can let go of any feelings of helplessness or passivity in the face of the suffering, and joyfully engage in the work of inner and outer transformation.

Everyone is welcome.

Note: These classes are suitable for everyone and each class is self-contained, so please feel free to attend the entire series or drop in to any class any week as and when you like.

This retreat will be live-streamed for monthly subscribers.
