About this course:
Imagine a life free from painful emotions like anxiety, stress, irritation, dissatisfaction and loneliness. But how can this become a reality? Buddha explained that all painful emotions are states of mind. By training in Kadampa Buddhist meditations you will learn the tools for changing your mind; from negative and painful to positive and peaceful.
In this series, we will look at effective Kadampa meditation-based solutions to everyday problems, which can be practiced by anyone, whether Buddhist or not. Each week will address a specific negative mind– and you will learn practical wisdom advice and meditations that will help you become free from harmful mental habits. In this way, you can become the person you truly want to be; happy, confident, loving and peaceful.
About the classes:
These drop-in classes aim to teach effective, meditation-based solutions to everyday problems taken from the Kadampa Buddhist tradition. Everyone is welcome – these practical meditations can be practised by anyone, whether Buddhist or not. Each class consists of guided meditations and practical advice on how to maintain a positive mind, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. Classes are self-contained and you can drop in whenever you wish; there’s no need to book in advance, simply turn up and register when you arrive.
We meditate sitting on chairs and there is no physical exercise involved or any special clothing needed. These classes are suitable for everyone, including complete beginners.
