Half-day courses

March 31st, 2014 | Posted by web admin in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

We are running two half-day courses in April:

Meditation Workshop ~ Saturday 26th April, 10.30am-1.30pm

In this short workshop, we will be introduced to three different types of meditation. The emphasis will be ‘hands on,’ with practical guidance on how to improve our familiarity with meditation techniques & deepen our ability to concentrate. Plenty of time for questions & discussion.

Overcoming Stress ~ Sunday 27th April, 2.00-5.00pm

Having a calm and peaceful mind is the best antidote to stress. Learning to focus our minds on virtuous objects such as love and compassion is the best way to find peace of mind. In this short course, we’ll look at  some meditations which help us develop these minds & so move towards a stress-free life.

Everybody welcome, no need to book.
