These classes are open to anyone who wishes to learn more about meditation, the Buddhist way of life, or those who just want a couple of hours of peace and calm! You are welcome to join at any time. We also regularly hold other special events.

How to Meditate
Book: The New Meditation Handbook
Term 4: Jun 19 – Jul 21
This series of classes is a practical guide to developing a daily meditation practice. It teaches us how to make ourselves and others happy by developing inner peace, and in this way making our lives more meaningful. Without inner peace there is no real happiness at all. Problems, suffering and unhappiness do not exist outside the mind; they are feelings and thus part of our mind. Therefore, it is only by controlling our mind that we can permanently stop our problems and make ourselves and others truly happy.
