Current series:

Habits of Happy People

Happiness is something that each one of us has the potential to experience, but often our habitual ways of thinking take us in the opposite direction. This engaging 4-week mindfulness series will teach critical lessons about some of the habits of happy people that will enrich your life’s experience.

We will explore several meditations and ways of thinking that uplift the mind and how by carrying these with mindfulness into our day we can maintain a light, joyful attitude whatever life throws our way. Everyone is welcome to attend this series of classes. No previous experience necessary.

Class schedule:

Week 1Contentment (31 Oct)(1 Nov)(4 Nov)
“Without contentment, a rich man will think he is poor”- Geshe Kelsang Gyato. By
learning to be happy with what we have we can overcome our overwhelming
dissatisfaction, simplify our life and be able to focus more easily on internal

Week 2Acceptance (7 Nov)(8 Nov)(11 Nov)
In this class, we will learn how to maintain a calm and joyful mind even in the most
challenging circumstances through applying Buddha’s teachings on patient

Week 3Joy (14 Nov)(15 Nov)(No class due to Advice for a Happy Life day course)
It is very easy to allow our mind to focus in ways that are contradictory with our
basic wish to be happy. This class will explore teachings and meditations that
enable us to keep a positive mind and overcome negative thoughts such as
jealousy, competitiveness and discouragement.

Week 4Gratitude (21 Nov)(22 Nov)(25 Nov)
We can get so stuck focusing on the negative that we can forget to appreciate all the
benefit we receive from others. By maintaining an awareness of the kindness of
others in our life we can keep a positive, grateful mind that will make us more warm
and well disposed towards others and protect us from unhappy thoughts.

Please note: you can drop into any class you want. Each class is self-contained, suitable for beginners and for those with experience.Read more about what to expect at a class
