A special time in the middle of your week to rest, reflect and improve your mind. Every week, you will learn different meditation practices, helping you to become a happier person through learning to apply Buddha’s practical teachings in your daily life. You are welcome to join our community meal at 1pm by booking before 10:30 am.
Normally we think of ourselves as being stuck with a fixed identity. However, Buddha’s startlingly profound and imaginative Tantric teachings give us a new vision of what’s possible. These teachings present highly effective methods for getting in touch with the deeper nature of our mind, where it is easy to let go of our self-limiting conceptions and to learn to identify with our potential for enlightenment. Often misunderstood & misused for shallow, worldly purposes, these methods will be introduced in a way that everyone can appreciate their real meaning and make use of in their daily life.
