Monday Morning Meditation Class 11am-12.15pm

Peace, Love and Tranquility

“We are so used to being stimulated from the outside that we find it difficult to be quiet and enjoy the stillness of our own mind.” 

Join us for a gentle four week meditation course exploring the themes of peace, love and tranquility.  In our busy modern world it takes a conscious decision to calm the mind, limit our distracting thoughts, and find peace.  

Through training in meditation we can release our mind from worry, anxiety, stress and tension.  Instead we can learn how to concentrate on positive meditations such as love that protect us from suffering, bring happiness and create a serene stillness within our own mind.

July 1 – Finding stillness and peace

July 8 – Protecting your mind with love

July 15 – Enjoying tranquility from within

July 22 – Life without stress

Secrets of Self-Esteem

No matter how confident or successful we seem on the outside, deep down it is common to feel inadequate or insecure. In our modern life we tend to focus on external things to bolster our confidence such as our appearance, status, possessions and attainments.  Not only are these things vulnerable to change but they don’t really bring the sense of self-worth we long for.

In this 2- week course we will explore what real inner confidence and self-esteem actually are and how to use Buddhist meditation practices to cultivate these.  When we are validated from within, we understand our own potential and self worth.  We are able to cultivate positive states of mind and truly benefit others.  In this way we can use meditation to be confident & happy in our lives.

Each session includes guided meditations and a teaching. After the class, there is the opportunity to discuss the course with other participants, browse the bookshop or enjoy a relaxing cuppa.

All welcome – no previous experience necessary 

Aug 19 –  Self esteem, self confidence & the key to happiness

Aug 26 – Realising our full potential

Healing from Grief & Loss

As part of our commitment to mental health and our well-being week we are delighted to be offering this free talk on how meditation can help us with healing from grief and loss. 

The experience of loss is universal and grief is a very understandable response that takes time to heal.  We may justifiably feel that things will never be the same and are mourning the past.  

Discover how meditation can stop you from suppressing your feelings, burying yourself in distractions, shutting others out or from being overwhelmed by difficult feelings.  

Meditation is an extremely useful tool to make peace with your feelings, to open up some inner space and to focus on life in more positive and optimistic ways. Then we can skillfully move through our grief, heal our pain, and find renewed purpose and vision. We can be happy again!

For those wishing to continue training this free event will be followed by a six week meditation training programme at the same time each week.  

This free course is part of our mental health & well-being series, supported by the National fund.
