“When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.” 

Thursday Meditation Class – in person or watch on catch up

September – October:  Finding Freedom

This four-week series will explore how we can use meditation, mindfulness and a practical application of Buddha’s timeless wisdom to find freedom from the negative emotions that too often crowd our mind and obstruct our peace.  Each week will explore one of the four noble truths taught by Buddha. We will use the Buddhist understanding of the mind to unpick why we develop such habitual responses and then how we can channel our focus in a more constructive direction, moving towards real mental freedom. 

Sept 23 – What we should know – the truth about suffering

Sept 30 – What we should abandon – the root cause of suffering

Oct  7 – What we should practice – following an inner path

Oct 14 – What we should attain – a free and peaceful mind
