Topics & Dates

Want to conclude this challenging year in a meaningful way? Enter into the magical meditative practices of taking suffering and giving happiness, and grow your potential to be of profound benefit to everyone around you
December 10

Happiness and suffering are feelings – parts of our mind – and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. In this series we will gain a deep insight into our mind, and discover how an understanding of its nature and functions can be used practically in everyday experience to improve our lives. Learn how to recognise and abandon states of mind that harm us, replace them with peaceful and beneficial ones, and start to make happiness your immediate reality.
