About the Event

With great joy we would like to announce that Glen Svensson will be returning to Copenhagen in 2020 during which he will offer 2 weekend courses:   

July 10 - 12 

CULTIVATING MINDFULNESS & EMOTIONAL BALANCE

August 7 - 9 

CULTIVATING WISDOM AND COMPASSION

INFO ABOUT THE COURSE

II. CULTIVATING WISDOM & COMPASSION, August 7- 9 2020

The two main wings of practice in the pursuit of genuine happiness and inner well-being are wisdom and

compassion.

During the Friday evening session will introduce these two topics of wisdom and compassion. And also

briefly discuss how to effectively cultivate them as part of an overall strategy for achieving genuine

happiness.

Then on Saturday and Sunday we will look at both of these two topics in more detail together with learning

and practicing various meditations associated with these two topics.

With regard to the wisdom practice we will discuss the insights into impermanence, suffering, no self and

emptiness also touching on the insight into the nature of mind. And with regard to the compassion practice

we will learn how to identify and effectively deal with the mental afflictions of anger and attachment. And

how to effectively cultivate the positive qualities of loving-kindness and compassion.

We will not only be emphasizing the learning of these skills but also how to integrate them into our daily life

so that they may form an effective basis for our pursuit of genuine happiness and well-being.
