Regular Meditation Drop-in Classes


Current Series: Happiness – How to Understand the Mind
February 18, 25, March 4, 11, 18
Happiness and suffering are feelings – parts of our mind – and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. In this series we will gain a deep insight into our mind, and discover how an understanding of its nature and functions can be used practically in everyday experience to improve our lives. Learn how to recognise and abandon states of mind that harm us, replace them with peaceful and beneficial ones, and start to make happiness your immediate reality.

Future 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.

‘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.
