Course descriptions

Develop Inner Peace –  September course on Thursdays

The purpose of meditation is to cultivate positive states of mind, conducive to peace and well-being, and overcome negative habits of mind.  Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happines lies in the mind, not in external situations.  When our mind is peaceful we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness.

Take control of your mind –  October course on Thursdays

In these classes based on the book ‘How to Transform Your Life’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, you will discover:

• how to develop and maintain a light positive mind,
• how to recognise and abandon states of mind that harm us
• how to replace them with peaceful and beneficial ones
