These days, many people suffer from anxiety and stress at some time or other. Sometimes it is due to stressful work, sometimes due to problems at home, and sometimes due to difficult relationships.

On this course, we will find out how anxiety and stress, as well as other conditions such as tension, nervousness, worry and depression, have their roots in our state of mind and show how we can reduce and eventually overcome these conditions by working on our mind with a combination of meditation and positive thinking.


  1. Inner peace
  2. How to develop and maintain a peaceful mind

Benefits of Meditation


The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful.


If we train in meditation our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness.


By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to control our mind regardless of external circumstances.
