CURRENT COURSE: Improving Relationships Through Meditation (STARTS 7/11/22)

To improve our relationships it often feels like it’s the other person who needs to change, but as much as we may wish it, that may never happen, and there’s no guarantee it would work anyway. However, there is a lot we can do from our side to make all our relationships smoother – through developing our patience and good heart of love and compassion. Learn how to develop these strong, peaceful minds and we can start to enjoy much more harmony in all our relationships.

TERM BREAK:
FROM 29/11/22

We are finishing up a little earlier this year, due to the Australian Festival at KMC Australia in Monbulk, VIC. Classes will resume at the end of January 2023. Please sign up for our e-newsletter to stay up to date, or check the website for details. Have a safe and happy holiday season!

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 🙂
