PLEASE NOTE: Classes are now held on Wednesday evenings at 10 Carden (see information below.
These classes offer simple, practical methods to improve the quality of our life and develop inner peace. Each class consists of two guided meditations and a teaching to help us solve our daily problems, let go of negative minds and find happiness from within our own mind. Even though classes are presented in the form of series, each class is self-contained and therefore can be attended individually or as a series. No pre-registration required.
If we understand the close connection between our mind and body we will gain great insight into how we can maintain wellness of body and mind. In this series, we will learn profound methods, taught by Buddha, to develop the capacity to completely free ourself from physical and mental pain coming from fears, sorrows and confusion. By practising these methods sincerely, we begin to generate healthier states of mind which will bring benefit to both ourself and others.*
