Training in mindfulness and meditation have been understood by Buddhist practitioners for centuries to be the key to a happy and fulfilling life. These practices are not confined to when we are sitting down, but can be integrated into every aspect of our life – becoming the foundation for everything we think, say and do.
Contrary to what many people believe, mindfulness training is not simply about “being in the moment”, but was originally taught as a process of training to remember special ways of thinking that form the basis of pure and beneficial thoughts and actions. This 4-week course will provide a traditional but accessible presentation of mindfulness training, exploring three core practices derived from Buddha’s teachings that can transform our daily living into a path to pure peace and happiness.
