Monday Evening Class

Advice for a Happy Life

Learn how to turn your life around and find true happiness with practical methods drawn from Buddha’s teachings. Classes consist of guided meditations together with advice on how to apply Buddhist wisdom to our daily life.

In these classes we will examine where our problems and suffering actually come, and discover that their real origin is not in the outside world but within our own minds. Having understood this, we can begin to apply the tools Buddha has taught to remove the suffering-producing tendencies in our mind, leading to progressively deeper peace, resilience and happiness.

Suitable for everyone.




Mental health and well-being are important for everyone and it’s important to know what you need to do to look after your mental well-being. Learning how to prevent unhealthy habits of mind and develop and maintain deeper levels of inner peace, relaxation and happiness are essential mental health habits and ones that can be simply practised on your own at home.

Buddhist meditation not only brings about these benefits, it enables you to understand and train your mind to remain happy and peaceful regardless of your circumstances.

In this 6-week course, Martin will explain how to train yourself to take good mental care and guide meditations so you can learn to gain control of your mind, giving you greater mental stability and well-being.
