Setting Intentions for 2013

January is the perfect month to re-calibrate and set intentions for the year ahead. Of course, some help from an internationally renowned Buddhist teacher certainly can't hurt. U.K.-based Buddhist teacher Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong will give a free talk in Toronto on Wednesday, January 30 on Meditation & Modern Buddhism.

January is the perfect month to re-calibrate and set intentions for the year ahead. Of course, some help from an internationally renowned Buddhist teacher certainly can't hurt.

U.K.-based Buddhist teacher Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong will give a free talk in Toronto on Wednesday, January 30 on Meditation & Modern Buddhism. The 90-minute talk, open to the public to register and attend, will be based on the book Modern Buddhism: the Path of Wisdom and Compassion, offering applied lessons on Buddha's teachings on compassion and wisdom. Gen-la will give practical advice on how to reduce daily stress, dissatisfaction and frustration, and ways to find genuine peace and happiness -- a fitting note to begin the New Year on. This evening is perfectly suited for anyone looking to add peace to their life -- and let's be honest: we can all use a bit more of that.
