Regular Meditation Drop-in Classes


Current Series: Meditation Made Easy
March 25, April 8, 15, 22
Meditation is a simple yet effective tool to change our mind from negative to positive, and to feel happier and more content. In these classes learn the essential methods to become an effective meditator, and how to overcome obstacles to meditation. These classes are suitable for beginners as well as those who want to improve their meditation skills.

Future Series: Letting Go of Worry & Frustration
May 6, 13 & 20

Everyone wants to be happy and content, but despite our best efforts to achieve this we often find ourselves miserable and stressed. In this course we will explore meditations and mindfulness techniques that enable us to recognise unhelpful states of mind as they arise, and we will learn how to let them go with confidence. Discover the peace of mind, freedom and genuine happiness that comes from letting go of worry, stress and frustration.

‘When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.’Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (from the book The New Meditation Handbook)
 

Meditation

Is a way of calming the mind, making us more peaceful, balanced and focused in our daily lives. Ultimately, it enables us to awaken our spiritual potential and find lasting joy and contentment.

Buddhism

Is a path of individual transformation. It teaches us to look within ourselves for the inner peace and happiness we seek. By developing a more positive outlook, and in particular by deepening our wisdom and compassion, we can improve the quality of our life and gain great power to help others.
