"I have had the good fortune to be able to listen to Buddha's teachings on Emptiness during the last 4 weeks with Gen Tubchen culminating in the retreat "Abiding in the Peace of Wisdom". These very profound teachings were given in such a way that for the first time in 5 years of studying dharma I am starting to understand a little bit more this subject on Emptiness. The live classes and recording on-line was a huge success and everyone who put together this event should be very proud. I look forward to joining more classes on-line in the future."

"Thank you Gen Tubchen for providing us with a wonderful Retreat.

Your guidance was simply beautiful. Thanks again ❤️🙏"

Retreat on Tranquil Abiding
"I finished the concentration course today. I really liked the analogy of being under the water, and contemplating external distractions as the waves that dissolve in the calm sea, and internal distractions as bubbles that dissolve into the surface, was a very good way to help me in the seek/find/hold process. Thank you so much for another wonderful teaching, Gen Kelsang Tubchen, it is such a delight to watch and see your engagement with the teachings, especially when you talk about concentration 💚💚💚 Looking forward to the weekend retreat on concentration!"
Special Event - Concentration Day Course
"Thankyou Gen Tubchen for another weekend of fantastic teachings🌞🙏💜"
"Thanks for my first ever class today. It's given me a lot to think about. I really liked the classes today, particularly the second session on acceptance and patience."
"Very much enjoyed today’s course. I am definitely finding what you said about regular meditation to be true for me. That we can develop more space between perception and reaction. I feel like I take more time and don’t rush to react the same and this allows me to mostly react in a better way. Also really enjoyed the meditation on trying to accept things as they are right now. 💕 Thankyou 🙏"
"I have enjoyed today's morning sessions. This is exactly where I was needing to go with my meditation right now."
Concentration Course Special Event
"Wonderful week of simply meditate classes. Learning how to hold the object was so effective and I really felt my meditation becoming so much more meaningful. I think this is what I have needed, that bit more structure to it. I'm looking forward to practising this technique more with the courses at the weekend and Retreat next week.😀"
"This week's Simply Meditate theme of concentration was of enormous benefit. Just booked the retreat too. Hugely grateful to Gen Tubchen for giving us this opportunity to deepen our concentration."
Sharon Kerr - Simply meditate class
"Thankyou for another week of beautiful meditations and teachings."
"Thank you Gen Tubchen for the most beautiful meditation today. I really felt the love. I feel so strongly more than ever, to abandon this self cherishing and self grasping. I actually feel as if I'm starting to waken up bit by bit. Wonderful feeling. 💕❤️🙏 xx"
"Wow. Loved today's teaching. Not the easiest topic but put in such a simple and logical way that even the most cynical person would have to give more thought. Thankyou Gen Tubchen, I could listen to these teachings all day long. 💜💙🙏"
