CURRENT COURSE:
Everyday Happiness (Starts 4/7/22)

Just as we want to be happy now, we will also want to be happy in the future, and have all the resources we need. Learn how to create the causes for the future we wish for through the practice of generosity. Discover how the art of giving is not only the best investment for our future, but makes every day of our life happy and meaningful.

NEXT COURSE:
The Missing Peace in a Puzzling World (STARTS 22/8/22)

In this uncertain modern world, full of dangers, how do we find real happiness? How can we develop real hope for our future, and inspire others to do the same? In these classes learn how Buddhist wisdom offers us a vastly different view of our world and the things that happen to us, and how, through understanding and controlling our own mind, we can be happy no matter what is happening around us. 

ABOUT THE CLASSES

Everyone is welcome. Classes include guided meditations and Buddhist teachings that are very practical and easily applied to help solve daily problems and experience more peace of mind. There is no need to book or bring anything, or to start at the beginning of the course – you can drop-in any week. At the end of each class there is an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the topic or about meditation. We hope to see you soon 🙂
