Making Positive Connections Friday Night Talk

FRI, May 24

6:30 - 8pm

with Wes Steele,
Kadampa Teacher

in person and live stream (for members)

All living beings deserve to be cherished because of the tremendous kindness they have shown us. All our temporary and ultimate happiness arises through their kindness. Even our body is the result of the kindness of others.

In this talk, Wes Steele will explore the following:

  • Contemplating the innumerable ways others help us

  • How making this positive connectivity creates a joyful mind

  • How we can deepen our love for others

“Wherever we look, we find only the kindness of others. We are all interconnected in a web of kindness from which it is impossible to separate ourself. Everything we have and everything we enjoy, including our very life, is due to the kindness of others. In fact, all the happiness there is in the world arises as a result of others’ kindness.”  — Geshe Kelsang Gyatso


Wes has been a student of Kadam Dharma for many years. He recently moved back to Indiana from Singapore and has lived in many countries around the world. He is a sincere and devoted practitioner who is known for his practical and kind-hearted approach to teaching Buddhism and meditation.


This weekend retreat will be using the book The New Eight Steps to Happiness by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. It's not required to have these books, but some people like to have them on hand during the event or read more afterward. You can purchase books in our Bookstore & Shop — check out our Shop schedule.
