Our instinctive reactions to situations can often make things worse, so if we wish to improve ourselves and our situation we need to take a different approach.

Learn skilful techniques to remain balanced, flexible and peaceful in the midst of difficult situations and conflicts.

Join us for a course of learning about the cool, spacious mind of patience, the direct opponent to the mind of anger.

This is a course open to everyone. Dress comfortably. Seating is on chairs. Please bring your own cushion if you wish to sit on the floor.

1: Is a life without anger possible?
2: How not to lose your cool
3: Healthy mind, healthy body
4: Staying positive in difficult times
5: Finding new ways to respond
6: Be cool. Stay calm. Be collected.


Alana has been practising meditation and studying Buddhism for many years. She brings to her teachings a wealth of practical ways to use Buddhist meditation, sharing her appreciation and experience of the many benefits for our relationships and happiness. Alana studies on the Foundation Programme and will be teaching a regular evening class in the Scottish Borders from June 2017. She is known for her practical, down-to-earth and light-hearted approach.

What does the class entail?

Each class consists of a breathing meditation to settle the mind, a short talk exploring an aspect of training in mindfulness and a second meditation based on the ideas raised. The session concludes with some take away advice that can be practised beyond the sessions allowing the benefits to pervade our life.

Do I have to attend all 6 weeks?

No, each class is self-contained and can be attended on a drop-in basis. However, it is beneficial if possible to attend the entire series of classes.
