Upcoming Classes:

Sunday morning and evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 24th, 26th, 28th February and 1st March:

'Know Your Mind, Change Your World'

Learning to meditate is a process of self empowerment that comes from knowing and harnessing the power of your own mind. Find out more in this class.

Sunday morning and evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th March: ‘Finding Mental Balance'

Our unbalanced minds can make us very vulnerable to changing circumstances, sending our emotions spinning in different directions. The meditations presented in this class will help you find the space and balance you need to interact with your world peacefully and positively.

Sunday morning and evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10th, 12th, 14th and 15th March: Empathy & Peace’

It is impossible to experience true peace without feeling well disposed to the people around you. Easier said than done, but with meditation very possible! Learn how in this class.

Sunday morning and evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 17th, 19th, 21st and 22nd March: ‘How to Stop Sabotaging Yourself'

Although there are many bad habits of mind which cause us problems, there is one in particular that is guaranteed to turn us against ourself. Learn more in this class.

Sunday evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 24th, 26th, 28th and 29th March: ‘The Most Positive Mind'

Often meditation is misunderstood as ‘switching off’ in order to find peace. In truth meditation helps us engage with life ever more deeply. This isn’t so hard when we’re encountering happy people, but how do we keep a positive mind when we encounter others suffering? In this class we will explore and meditate on compassion, the most positive of minds.

Sunday morning and evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 31st March, 2nd, 4th and 5th April: ‘Developing Peace as an Act of Kindness'

Another common misunderstanding about meditation is that it is self indulgent and of no real use to others. Here we will gain confidence that investing in our own peace is the best gift to those around us.

Sunday evening, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 7th, 9th, 11th and 12th April: ‘The Power of the Mind'

Insight into the nature of our mind is very powerful. With it we can come to know in our own experience how our mind creates our world and empower our meditation practice with a deep confidence and joy that what we’re doing brings the most benefit possible.
