Saturday Half-day Courses

Our Saturday morning, half-day courses are designed to help you learn meditation tips, improve the quality of your life and gain an experience of inner peace through short, guided meditations.

The courses offer practical advice on how to maintain the experience of inner peace in daily life and the opportunity to discuss the ideas presented in the class with our resident teacher, Gen Kelsang Varahi.

Seating is provided on both chairs and cushions on the floor and the courses are open to everyone… whether you are new to meditation or  returning, these courses will provide helpful advice and inspiration for your own meditation practice. For more information please see our meditation FAQs.

The Confidence to be Happy With Ourself

Saturday 5th June  |  10am – 1:15pm  |  Available in-person and online

£15 (free for Standard & Benefactor members). Book below!

What is this course about?

Imagine someone asks us, what do you think about yourself? If we are fortunate we might see we have many good qualities, but most of us would also admit to having faults and bad habits. In the extreme, we might even see ourselves as useless or unworthy.

Reflecting upon ourselves in this way can bring us benefits… we might decide to try to live a healthier lifestyle or look for ways of improving our mind. But living in an ultra-competitive world and new technologies such as social media can also lead us to project and aspire to an ideal image of ourselves that is difficult to live up to.

In this course we learn how to apply Buddha’s wisdom and identify ourselves correctly, which will then allow us to establish a real and lasting confidence. This new found confidence will naturally give rise to an inner peace that enables us to recognise our faults as simply bad habits, and with a clear mind we will finally see how to apply our efforts effectively to overcome them.

Creating a Pure World

Saturday 3rd July  |  10am – 1:15pm  |  Available in-person and online

£15 (free for Standard & Benefactor members). Book below!

What is this course about?

Buddha taught that the mind has the power to create all pleasant and unpleasant objects. When our mind is angry or unhappy we experience an unpleasant and disagreeable world, but when our mind is peaceful and loving we experience a pleasant world. This shows how our mind is the creator of our reality.

Understanding this gives us great hope and ability to create the pure and happy world we all wish for. On this course we will learn the practical techniques to help transform our mind in difficult situations, thereby transforming our experiences into positive ones.
