Wednesday morning meditation class

Learn how to turn your life around and find true happiness with practical methods drawn from Buddha’s teachings. Classes consist of guided meditations and a short and practical talk on how to apply Buddhist wisdom to the day to day problems we face in our busy modern lives. There will be time for questions. These classes are suitable for everyone, whether you have meditated before or this is your first time. No special clothing is necessary and most people choose to sit on chairs

 

New Series: The Inner power for Happiness

Following our investigation of how our mind works, in this next series we will focus on how we can create our own happiness from within. Normally we think that happiness comes from outside – from good external conditions, relationships, success etc, but these things alone do not have the power to produce happiness. Happiness is a state of mind, and its real source is also in the mind, specifically in the positive or virtuous mental factors. These can be deliberately cultivated, and the more familiar we become with these virtuous, peace and happiness creating states of mind, the deeper and more stable our happiness will be, even when things are not going well externally.
