Meditation ClassOur Thursday evening classes teach basic meditation and the practice of Kadampa Buddhism. The purpose of these classes is to help people to gain personal experience of inner peace, to overcome their daily problems, and to find real happiness in their hearts.

Our classes consist of guided meditations, a talk and discussion. The classes are suitable for everyone from beginners to experienced meditators. Each class is self contained, though you are welcome to attend the whole course. They provide an ideal introduction to meditation and Buddhism, teaching effective and practical methods for overcoming problems and increasing happiness in daily life.

Book: How to Understand the Mind
Term 4: Aug 7 – Sep 1

In this modern world, we are so accustomed to being stimulated from the outside that we forget to take time to enjoy the stillness of our own mind and reconnect with our deeper goals. During this course we will learn how to take a break from our distractions and multi-tasking, and make some time to enjoy true peace and quiet. Learning to calm and focus our mind using meditation improves our clarity, mindfulness and happiness. Learn how to think differently.
