Book Talk – How to Understand the Mind
Enjoy an evening of contemplation at Waterstones Liverpool One, with Gen Kelsang Jigme, a Buddhist monk and the principal teacher at Kadampa Meditation Centre Liverpool.

Towards the end of the talk, Gen Jigme will take questions about the book and more general questions about meditation and Buddhism.
