Meditation is a simple and direct method for connecting with an underlying sense of peace, security and a recognition of our potential for change. Gaining experience in meditation gives us a place from which to let go of fear and anxiety. It revolutionises our outlook, enabling us to approach life with a sense of purpose and adventure.
Buddha taught that all our unhappiness, stress and anxiety comes from our mind. More specifically it comes from our unrealistic expectations and our exaggerated views of ourself, people around us and the world in general.
By learning to identify the actual causes of stress and unhappy thoughts, we can begin to understand how to become free from them. On this course we will explore special ways of thinking and meditations that heal the mind of the source of these problems.
Everyone welcome. Perfect for beginners.
