Dates: October 17, 24, 31 & November 7 (4 weeks)

What is the class about?
We don't often stop to think what the mind is or how it works, yet it affects our experiences everywhere we go and in everything we do.

Through learning what the mind is and how it works we can begin to control it.  Through controlling it, we can begin to reduce our negative thoughts, such as stress and worry, replacing them with positive and happy states of mind.

This is a general class series, which has been designed for beginners and is open to everyone.  There are four classes, each  are standalone, so if you can't attend all of them don't worry.

Real Solutions for our daily problems

Class fee: £6  | Free for members | Reserve your place

Time: 7.30pm - 9.15pm (Arrive around 7.20pm)

Dates: November 21, 28, December 5 & 12 (4 weeks)

What is the class about?
We generally try to solve our problems through external methods, such as trying to change people and situations.  Do you ever feel though that this never really seems to work?  And that problems keep on coming?

Through learning to look at our 'problems' in a different way, we can learn how to change our mind, so that solving our problems becomes easy!  And you can develop a peaceful mind at the same time!
