How To Be Happy: – A meditator’s guide to positive thinking.

With Kelsang Lamchen
A four week course;  Thursdays;  January 17th, 24th, 31st and February 7th
Happiness is a state of mind that anyone can develop through training in meditation and mindfulness.When our mind is peaceful we can maintain our experience of happiness regardless of whatever life throws at us and we naturally have the inner stability and flexibility of mind to view the things in our life more positively.
This 4 week course will focus on building positive, peaceful minds that we can apply to all aspects of our life.
The classes are also very much self-contained so also work well as drop-in classes.
Please book for the first class or for the whole course by clicking below.
Or just turn up on the night.
The suggested donation for the  entire 4 week course is £22. For one class it is £7.
