MEDITATION AND MINDFULNESS
Our meditation and mindfulness classes include more practical advice on how to live a happy and positive life through meditation and mindfulness.
In each class a different aspect of meditation and Buddhism is explained. The classes are self-contained so you can drop in any week. There is no need to book or bring anything. Classes begin with a simple guided breathing meditation followed by a teaching and a second guided meditation based on the topic.
HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE
MARCH 22, 29 APRIL 5
On this series of classes we will be exploring our own mind. What is our mind? What are our thoughts? We will explore how by understanding the nature of our thoughts and feelings, we can develop the freedom to let them go and so develop a more peaceful, happy mind. We can develop some inner space and clarity which enables us to decide which thoughts we wish to follow and which to not pay attention to. We can also learn not to be overwhelmed by painful feelings as they arise.
APRIL 26 MAY 3, 10, 17, 24
Learn how to get perspective on our experiences in life, so that we can live more lightly and meaningfully.
MEDITATION classes for everyone.
ENJOY calming guided meditations and learn reliable methods to make your mind clear and positive and thereby transform your life.
‘Every living being has the same basic wish – to be happy and avoid suffering. Even newborn babies, animals and insects have this wish. It has been our main wish since beginningless time and it is with us all the time, even during our sleep. We spend our whole life working hard to fulfil this wish.
Since this world evolved, human beings have spent almost all their time and energy improving external conditions in their search for happiness and a solution to their problems. What has been the result? Instead of their wishes being fulfilled, human suffering and problems have continued to increase while the experience of happiness and peace is decreasing. This clearly shows that until now we have not found a correct method for reducing our problems and increasing happiness.
The actual correct method for doing this is changing our attitude from negative to positive. We must understand this through our own experience’.
