What's the course about?

Learn to meditate to experience a peaceful and happy mind.  This course is a simple introduction to meditation.

During this course we will engage in relaxing meditations to free our body and mind from stress and tension.

Through this experience, we will have the ability and confidence to do these meditations at home in our daily life.

The course will also include instruction on ways of thinking that reduce stress.

"So much of the stress and tension we normally experience comes from our mind, and many of the problems we experience, including poor health, are caused or aggravated by this stress. Just by doing breathing meditation for ten or fifteen minutes each day, we will be able to reduce this stress. We will experience a calm, spacious feeling in the mind, and many of our usual problems will disappear." Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Transform Your Life

Course fee: £15 (per day)  Free for members | Book

What's the course about?

In this course we will learn how to cope with and transform the strains of modern life using practical meditation methods.

Gaining experience of these will help us to transform difficulties at work and home and will increase our experience of peace and happiness.

This course will build upon the instructions given in the previous course, De-Stress & Unwind, but it is not essential to attend both.

Through gaining familiarity with positive ways of thinking in meditation, we can experience deep and lasting happiness in daily life and protect ourself from painful feelings.
