The Science of Positive Thinking

You should know your own mind’. This essential advice from Buddha will be the topic of a series of 7 classes as we investigate the nature and workings of the mind from a practical point of view.
By gaining an understanding of our mind and applying it personally we can become happier and more peaceful right here and now. From initially avoiding the more dramatic, turbulent, or unhappy states of mind, we will gradually come to regard the challenges of daily life as opportunities to develop resilience and to cultivate attitudes of patience and compassion. With time and a little effort our mind will naturally become more supple and enjoyable and we will be able to envision our potential to become a truly extraordinary person.
Although each class is self-contained and can be attended individually, the whole course would provide a more complete picture.

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.
