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.
Awakening the Heart: Learning to Love
We all have the wish to improve ourself, become a better person and have a kinder attitude towards others. But sometimes, as a result of having experienced rejection in the past or from lacking confidence or skillful methods, we feel reluctant to open our heart. Buddha taught that we all have an inexhaustible potential to love, and that learning to develop it will bring only good results for ourself and others. Pure Love is a mind that wishes others to be happy and is completely free from expectations.
In this series, learn practical methods to improve our mind of love by learning to use any situation of everyday life as an opportunity to apply these instructions. Make a special determination to learn and try out the methods to awaken your loving heart and gain confidence to change your life in the most profound way.
Classes continue throughout the year.
