Classes begin with a simple guided breathing meditation followed by a teaching and a second guided meditation based on the topic. There is also an opportunity for discussion, followed by refreshments.

Topics & Dates

Stress, anxiety, worry. Whatever we call it, we could all do without it. Our stresses, anxieties and worries do not come from the situations we encounter and the people we have to deal with, but as a result of our relating to these things in unhelpful ways. In this course, uncover some of the negative mental habits that lie at the root of these painful and exhausting states of mind and learn ways to overcome them.
