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.

21 Meditations for Your Life

This series of classes is based on The New Meditation Handbook by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. This handbook contains 21 meditations known as lamrim or the ‘stages of the path to enlightenment’ and is especially suited for people trying to incorporate a meditation practice into a busy lifestyle. Each week, Edwin Tubb will provide an explanation of the topic and guide us through the meditation. By focusing on the 21 meditations systematically, we will be empowered to deal positively with any situation we meet & gradually become a source of inspiration and joy for others.

Kindness in Action: The Six Practices of a Bodhisattva

A Bodhisattva is a compassionate warrior, willing to do battle with his or her own negativity in order to be more effective in helping others.  The teachings on the main practices of a Bodhisattva, known as the six perfections, provide us with inspiring and practical guidelines to lead the most joyful and beneficial life. If each of us can bring out this hero within us, we can bring enormous relief and transformation to our world.
