Sunday, October 13th,  Embracing Change: A Day Retreat with Gen Kelsang Chogden at Keajra KBC in Virginia Beach

Although change is happening all the time, we often long for things to stay the same! However, when we embrace change, our mind becomes less anxious and we feel more peaceful and content in our busy daily lives. Wholeheartedly accepting the small changes that we experience every day gives us the flexibility and strength of mind to remain happy and adjust skilfully to new circumstances when big changes occur. By sharing our peace of mind with those around us, we can help our family and friends to feel more comfortable and peaceful in the midst of life’s changes — such as moving, separation, losing a job, illness, aging and even death.


Gen Kelsang Chogden is an American Buddhist nun and the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Maryland. Gen Chogden has been practicing Kadampa Buddhism for 20 years under Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, who gave her the title “Gen” indicating that she is a senior ordained teacher of the Kadampa Tradition.

Gen Chogden’s compassionate activities of teaching, guiding, and inspiring those around her are the result of her deep faith, clear wisdom, and heartfelt concern for others that brings true sincerity and humility to her life as a spiritual teacher.

Her teachings are always practical and easy to apply to everyday life. Through her gentle and joyful approach and her peaceful example, she has helped many people find true happiness in their hearts.
