Future series: Advice from the Heart
In modern times we face many challenges and difficulties in our lives and our daily experience is often stressful and unrewarding. By learning to integrate the ancient wisdom of Buddha’s teachings into our daily life, we can find practical solutions to many of our everyday problems and discover real meaning in every moment of our life.
The teachings and meditations during this series will be based on the renowned text, Advice from Atisha’s Heart, composed by the Indian Buddhist master Atisha (982-1054 CE). These teachings encapsulate the very essence of how to lead a life of compassion and wisdom and are as relevant today as when they were first given.

- Week Two – Giving
- Week Three – Patience
- Week Four – Effort
- Week Five – Concentration

BASED ON THE KADAMPA WAY OF LIFE ADVICE FROM ATISHA’S HEART
