Finding Your Spiritual Spark

Lost your spark? This short series of classes will look at spiritual practices taught by Buddha that help us to recover our inner strength, collect our thoughts and see things in perspective. Through engaging in these practices we can feel confident, motivated and inspired to improve ourself and benefit others. 

Each class will include a guided breathing meditation to relax and quieten our mind; a short, thought-provoking teaching; and a guided, contemplative meditation to help us think deeply about the topics and draw positive conclusions to carry into our daily life.

Week One: Sat 12th June – Finding Lasting Happiness

Week Two: Sat 19th June – Energising our Meditations

Week Three: Sat 26th June – Living Lightly With Wisdom
