You will also be introduced to meditation techniques that uplift the mind, providing you with the knowledge and tools to live a more meaningful and happy life.

You will learn:

– Essential meditations from the Buddhist tradition

– How to understand your mind

– Meditation techniques to develop a stable, peaceful and happy mind

Classes last for an hour. They are suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience of meditation. Light refreshements will be served before or after the class.
