Geshe Kelsang Wangmo was the first – and currently only – woman to be awarded a Geshe title (only for monastics, it is equivalent to a PhD in Buddhist philosophy).
In this intensive weekend workshop, Geshe Wangmo explains how to incorporate the Buddha’s teachings into our daily lives so that the teachings don’t remain locked up in books on our bookshelves but rather become become part of how we think and act. Based on her traditional monastic education, Geshe la shows how the Four Noble Truths are relevant to contemporary life and how we can use them to define a balanced, realistic sense of happiness. Topics include the wonders of being alive, developing positive relationships, a discussion about the intricacies of karma and much more.
