Upcoming Classes:

Sunday evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 6th, 8th, 10th and 11th January:

‘How to Enjoy a Peaceful Mind’

Stress is the modern malady, a side effect of our complicated lives. Lucky for us the answers are at our fingertips with meditation. In this class we will explore what meditation means for our peace of mind and how to start to enjoy the peace it brings.

Sunday morning and evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 13th, 15th, 17th and 18th January:

‘Stepping Back From Anxiety

When we’re anxious it’s like we can’t breath. We’re so close to our problem there’s no room to think clearly. In this class we will explore methods to create space between ourselves and our anxious minds, so we can begin to move towards a happier place.

Sunday morning and evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 20th, 22nd, 24th and 25th January:

‘Lifting Depression By Opening Your Heart’

Low moods or depression can be like a black hole sucking us into ourselves. In this class we will explore how to gently move our minds back out towards the wider world, finding our own peaceful centre in the process.

Sunday evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 27th, 29th, 31st January and 1st February:

‘Putting Out the Fire of Anger’

We all get angry. We might not lose it completely, but low level irritation and annoyance can fill our life with poison and steal our joy just as easily. In this class we will learn how to extinguish the sparks that cause the flames and so enjoy a cool, calm mind.

Sunday morning and evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th February:

‘Taking Back Ownership of Your Feelings’

When we say, ‘you make me feel bad’, we are giving away our power and making ourself a victim. This perpetuates our problems. By taking responsibility for our feelings we empower ourselves to make strong decisions, solving our inner problems and creating appropriate boundaries for healthy relationships. Discover how meditation can empower you in this class.

Sunday evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10th, 12th, 14th and 15th February:

‘How to Make Every Moment Meaningful’

Everyone wants to be happy all the time and to always avoid suffering, so if we are moving towards this goal we can say we are living a truly meaningful life. In this class we will explore how to make this joyful journey a reality in each moment.
