MORNING: Stress Free Living – meditation course

Time: 10.30am-1pm

Fee: £20 or £15 if booking online

So much of the stress and tension we normally experience comes from our mind, and many of the problems we experience, including ill health, are caused or aggravated by stress. Learn simple meditation techniques to reduce this stress.

Stress, anxiety, fear and overwhelm are nearly universal experiences of our busy modern lives. These very common states of mind rob us of our ability to enjoy our life, and to experience peace and happiness. Buddha’s timeless teachings offer a simple and yet profound alternative: If we can train our mind to respond to life’s challenges with a peaceful, positive attitude, all our ordinary problems and difficulties fall away, and we discover our true nature, which is infinitely calm, happy and stable. In this way we can learn to face life with clarity and inner strength.

Includes guided meditations that will help you experience real relaxation.

AFTERNOON: Essential Mindfulness – meditation course

Time: 2-4.30pm

Fee: £20 or £15 if booking online

Nowadays it seems our attention is easily scattered and our mind cluttered with endless distractions. By training in meditation and mindfulness, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to control our mind regardless of the external circumstances. Gradually we develop mental equilibrium, a balanced mind that is happy all the time, rather than an unbalanced mind that oscillates between the extremes of excitement and despondency.

By living mindfully, we free ourselves from the mental burden of worry and over-scheduled lives. Learn practical techniques to reduce stress and anxiety, and find stillness within.

Perfect for anyone who wishes to have a centered, happy life!
