About the course 

Are you tired of worry, anxiety and other disturbing habits of mind? Would you like to develop the freedom to just say no to painful emotions and develop some peace of mind?  

If the answer to these questions are yes, you are definitely not alone. These experiences are common for as long as we have an uncontrolled and busy mind. 

By training in meditation you will develop an inner space and clarity that enables you to begin to control your mind. You will learn how to recognise and let go of mental habit patterns that disturb your mind. Meditation is a tool by which you can deeply familiarise your mind with more constructive mental attitudes that will gradually heal the causes of your anxiety, stress and other disturbing thoughts. 

On this 4 week course you will learn how to meditate. How to develop a powerful meditation practice that not only calms the mind but actually transforms your mind – and the way you experience everything. This course will teach you everything you need to know to begin, develop or deepen your meditation practice. 

We can all learn how to develop a meditation practice – in the midst of daily busy life that will facilitate the development of uplifting and positive mental attitudes and help us to become the person we want to be.

The course will run in Birmingham City Centre on Sundays and Tuesday day times and evenings as well as in Solihull on Mondays and Sutton Coldfield on Thursdays.
