CLASS STRUCTURE

CLASSES IN JUNE

7th | 14th | 21st | 28th

What is real happiness?  Real happiness is happiness that comes from a peaceful mind.

When we begin to recognise that happiness does not come from worldly enjoyments we can begin to relax and cultivate an authentic happiness that will never let us down.

All of our classes are drop in, so you can turn up any week

CLASSES IN JULY

5th | 12th | 19th

Discover the power of love to protect us from suffering.  Learn how to cultivate and maintain a loving heart.

“Meditation on love is very powerful.  Pure love is unmixed with attachment and stems entirely from a concern for others’ happiness. It never gives rise to problems but only to peace and happiness for both ourself and others.” from How to Transform Your Life by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

All of our classes are drop in, so you can turn up any week or book for the 3 weeks in advance and enjoy seeing how these classes fit together.

CLASSES IN AUGUST

16th | 23rd | 30th

What is the mind?  Since happiness and suffering are states of mind we need to understand clearly what our mind is and how it functions.  Then we can begin to take control of our mind, develop good intentions and move towards inner peace and happiness.

“We often say, ‘My mind, my mind’, but if someone were to ask us, ‘What is your mind’, we would have no correct answer.  This is becaue we do not understand the nature and function of the mind correctly.”  from How to Understand the Mind by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

All of our classes are drop in, so you can turn up any week or book for the 3 weeks in advance and enjoy seeing how these classes fit together.
