Suitable for beginners, all of our classes offer an insight into how meditation and Buddha’s teachings give us the strength and confidence to let go of inner conflict and outer problems through developing peaceful and positive states of mind.
Over these five weeks we will follow a step by step guide to developing a daily meditation practice and understanding how we can integrate our practice into our daily life.
Week 1: Identifying worry in our own mind so that we can begin to let go of it.
Week 2: Simple meditations to begin to create some inner space.
Week 3: What are we worrying about? One inner cause rather than countless outer ones.
Week 4: How through meditation we can begin to remove the inner cause of worry.
Week 5: Breaking free from the illusion our mind creates.
