Suitable for everyone, these walk-in classes offer simple, practical methods to improve the quality of our lives and develop inner peace. These classes focus on using Buddhist understanding to help us solve our daily problems, let go of negative minds and find the lasting happiness we seek.

Each class includes teaching, guided meditation and an opportunity to ask questions. Although taught as a series, each class is self-contained and can be attended individually.

Freedom from Painful Emotions

In this series of classes we will dedicate each week to addressing a specific toxic mind – called the delusions – and learn how to apply the positive mental opponent. We will discover why these negative states of mind arise and how, through our meditation practice, we can completely eliminate them from our mind. These practical methods will give us the skills to be the confident and joyful person we wish to be.

Freedom from Jealousy & Resentment

In our life we may go through unpleasant experiences, which we can struggle to move on from.  We may have difficulties in our relationships at present that stem from past experiences.  In this series, we will learn how to let go of these negative minds and develop positive mental habits which will result in future happiness.

Training in Happiness

We spend our whole life searching outside for happiness and instead experience much frustration and disappointment. But according to Buddha, the cause of real happiness lies within – specifically in the form of positive or virtuous states of mind. In the book How to Understand the Mind, Geshe Kelsang explains “The 11 Virtuous Mental Factors”, states of mind with the special function to produce happiness.

Each week we will explore one of these special minds and learn how to integrate them into our daily life.  In this way we can experience real fulfilment and become a source of great benefit to others.
