Meditation Drop-in Classes

Find freedom from unhappy minds and experience joy and inner peace

In modern times we face many challenges and difficulties in our lives and our daily experience is often stressful and unrewarding. By learning to integrate the ancient wisdom of Buddha’s teachings into our daily life, we can find practical solutions to many of our everyday problems and discover real meaning in every moment of our life.

Current series: Learning to Let Go

We sometimes find it difficult to move on from past events or to let go of unfulfilled dreams. Our inability to let go can become a great source of mental suffering and can affect the way we live and experience our life. Normally we respond by blaming the situation, ourselves or others but by learning practical methods for keeping our mind peaceful and happy, we will gradually be able to reduce our negative feelings and start to enjoy our life.

Class fee $15

Our weekly drop-in classes are suitable for all levels of experience. Each class includes two guided meditations, a talk on a practical aspect of Buddhism or meditation (see topics below), and time for questions. There is no need to attend every class, just drop-in when you have the time. Everybody welcome.

from Nov 21

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.
