Yeshe Norbu Mind Training Centre is turning one!
We would like to celebrate this special event with you on November 25 with a potluck party! Bring your favorite dish and enjoy this afternoon with us!
The course is suitable for you who want to learn more about the Buddhist Science of Mind, philosophy, and psychology, and for you who want to deepen your knowledge and practice in Tibetan Mahayana Buddhism. November 7 we´ll start Module Two: "How to Meditate" - very practical course for 6 weeks, join us!
Trots mörker och ett trasigt uppväxt - ändå kan man lyckas bli en kärleksfull och närvarande pappa och make. Trots mörkret - man kan ta snällheten, hoppet och framtidstron som vapen. Inte våldet. Lyssna till Daniels egen resa.
Learn to meditate: this is a very practical course and helps you to get started - or helps you with the practice you already have. All the aspects of meditation will be analyzed: how meditation can change your life, obstacles, possibilities . . .
We spend our life seduced by the outside world, convinced that happiness and suffering come from “out there.” How can we begin to unpack and unravel the workings of our own mind, so that we can find lasting happiness that is not dependent on external conditions?
This is all about the progressive development of the mind, suitable for anyone who wants to learn more about mind training and the gradual stages to the awakened mind.
An evening where Venerable Robina Courtin talks about one of her main teachers, Lama Thubten Yeshe, the founder of FPMT.
In her unique, down-to-earth and intense manner, Robina will analyse how experience drives our emotions and how we can train our minds to develop emotional inner strength and balance.
Hur uppstår medvetande? Varför har vi överhuvudtaget en medveten upplevelse? En modererad diskussion mellan vetenskapsjournalisten Per Snaprud och Martin Ström, Yeshe Norbus grundare där den västerländska och buddhistiska synen på medvetandet möts.
Very practical course where you learn both the theory and the practice of Mindfulness. Get more focused, relaxed, and calm.
"Be your own therapist: tools for dealing with emotions" is a weekly talk about emotions.
Have you experienced anger? Fear? What do you do to deal with disturbing emotions?
This course gives an overview of the progressive development of the mind. We´ll come to understand the different stages - by meditating on them, meditating on different topics.
Åldrandet och döden i sig är inte det som är orsak för rädsla, utan våra tankar och känslor kring dem. Och för att bemöta andras lidande kring dessa frågor, vi måste först hjälpa oss själva och bekanta oss med vårt eget åldrande och eventuell död.
Visualization meditation is one of the meditation techniques within Tibetan Buddhism, concentration and analytical meditation being the other two. We visualize all the time – imagining our future, scenes from the past, picturing the faces of our loved ones. This ability to think in images can be used to improve our meditation practice. For instance, visualizing other sentient beings when meditating on love helps us make our meditation experience more genuine. When we visualize enlightened beings as Green Tara, the…

Mindfulness in the real world
There are many different ideas of what mindfulness is. In Buddhist psychology, mindfulness is simply being able to focus on something without becoming distracted with a mind that is relaxed, stable, and clear.
The opposite of this is having a mind that is tense, distracted, and dull, something we all recognize from everyday life. Imagine going through the day with a completely relaxed mind, being fully focused on all your tasks and everyone you meet and experiencing everything with a brilliant clarity. These are the direct benefits of developing mindfulness.
The true benefit of developing mindfulness, however, is to then apply that mindfulness to our own experience and the world around us. This application of mindfulness leads to insights that help us live more in tune with reality.
On the basis of mindfulness beautiful states of minds like love, compassion, generosity will grow. On the basis of mindfulness we can become more wise and insightful and instead of being constantly tormented by our own minds, we can make our own minds our best friend.

The wisdom of doing nothing
Reading about mind training and cultivating our minds can sound exhausting. Yet another thing on the list of improvement projects next to the failed gym membership and the exhausting need for professional training to keep up in your career.
When we, the people of modernity, when we meet these age old techniques of meditation and mind training, we approach them like everything else in our lives. We want to perform, we want to be the best, we try so hard. Too hard. This becomes our biggest challenge.
We need to cultivate the ability to relax deeply, to let go of all striving, to simply rest in things as they are, to experience contentment without the need to achieve anything. We need to learng to stop “doing” and cultivate “being”.
Come spend a moment of stillness and peace with us. Just sitting quietly together with no agenda, no striving, no need for improvement. Come sit with us in the spirit of kindness, and self-care.
