Class topics:
Letting Go of Stress and Anxiety – Week of 1 April to week of 29 April 5 weeks

Many people suffer from anxiety and stress at some time or other. Sometimes it is due to stressful work, sometimes due to problems at home, and sometimes due to difficult relationships.

On this course, learn how anxiety and stress, as well as other conditions such as tension, nervousness, worry and depression have their roots in our state of mind and show how we can reduce and eventually overcome these conditions by working on our mind with a combination of meditation and positive thinking.

4 Apr – A temporary relief
11 Apr – Stop Grasping
18 Apr –Stop Don’t Panic
25 Apr – Learning to Look Outwards
2 May – Thinking of Others

Understanding Karma – week of 6 May to week of 27 May 4 weeks

Due to our misunderstanding of karma, we create problems and suffering for ourselves and destroy our own happiness. By purifying our mind and engaging in pure actions, we come to abide in a pure world.

9 May – Whats Karma?
16 May – 10 Things Not To Do In Life
23 May – Purify your mind
30 May – Create your Future

Habits of Happy People – week of 3 June to week of 24 June 4 weeks

We all have habits that seem hard to break. Unfortunately, many of these habits also make us unhappy or even harm our health. Even though we try very hard, sometimes we feel helpless to change.

Through practicing Buddha’s teachings, we can gain confidence in our potential to change. We can then replace even our most stubborn habits with profoundly beneficial ways of thinking that lead only to peace and happiness.

6 Jun – Consideration for others
13 Jun – Joy
20 Jun – Humility
27 Jun – Rejoicing

What to expect at a class:
These classes are based on Buddha’s teachings on the mind, but you do not need to be a Buddhist to attend or to benefit from them. Each class consists of two guided meditations and an explanatory talk.

The classes run for 90 minutes. Anyone can practise meditation and everyone is welcome to attend. There is no physical exercise involved and you can choose to sit either in a chair or on a cushion.

These classes are suitable for all levels of experience.
