Buddha’s teachings are scientific methods for improving our human nature and qualities through developing the capacity of our mind.

In this course, we will cover the scientific methods for training the mind taught by Buddha 2600 years ago.

By gently training in the meditations that calm the mind, we gradually become more peaceful, confident, and happy. With this positive nature, we can bring true benefit to the world around us.

At Christmas, we have many conditions in place that we expect to make us happy. We have so many expectations. We have a time off work, time with our family, lots of food, parties & presents but this can easily turn into a pressure cooker of intense emotions.

On this 3 week course learn how to work with our unrealistic expectations and develop peace and clarity of mind. This will help us to prepare our minds for the more challenging periods of the holidays so that you can actually enjoy the festive season and make the most of this precious time with our family.

Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. We all wish for world peace, but world peace will never be achieved unless we first establish peace within our own minds.
