Have you ever wondered what meditation could do for you? Here is your chance to find out!
In this half day course you will learn practical and effective meditations that will help you to find a feeling of inner peace and calm.
Find out how being mindful of our thoughts and feelings helps us to deal with stress and to enjoy our life more.
“The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness: but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions”. If we train in meditation our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we shall experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances”. From How to Transform Your Life by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
