Upcoming events

STARTING TUE 2 NOV, 7 pm – 8.15 pm 

– A NEW SERIES OF WEEKLY MEDITATION CLASSES –
IN-PERSON & LIVESTREAMED

Our desires are powerful driving forces in our lives. They can lead us to happiness and fulfilment, or problems and dissatisfaction. Uncontrolled desire or attachment is one of the main causes of our craving, anxiety and daily problems. It is the source of our relationship difficulties and addictive patterns and prevents us from enjoying our life. On this course we will explore the habitual thought patterns that function to induce this constant craving and learn practical Buddhist wisdom and meditations that help us let go of craving and find satisfaction and fulfilment in our lives.

The course is designed sequentially, but you can join at any time. In-person and online.

letting GO OF WORRY

THIS SAT 30 OCT 2 – 3.30 pm
AFTERNOON MEDITATION WORKSHOP
IN-PERSON & LIVESTREAMED

Worry is a common response to things we have little or no control over, yet worry itself never solves problems! By consuming our mental energy and filling our time with endless troubling thoughts, we can find ourself exhausted and overwhelmed – even before anything happens! On this course, discover a deeper understanding of why we worry so much and learn meditation techniques that allow us to unlearn this bad mental habit, become more peaceful and happy and enjoy every moment of our life.

This course will be followed by a 3 week course ‘Letting Go of Worry’
on Tuesday evenings in December.

Please note: If you wish to book on-line and not in person, this event is live streamed only. Sessions are only available at the scheduled time and will not be available afterwards.
