It’s increasingly common that feelings of worry and anxiety plague our everyday lives and that feelings of insecurity and lacking confidence hold us back from fulfilling our potential. Consequently, we never really feel at ease in ourselves, fully present for our interactions with others, and life can feel overwhelming.

In this 6-week course you will be guided in meditation and Buddhist teachings that have the transformative power to help you step out of this unpleasant experience.
Through learning practical techniques, applicable in daily life, you can begin to reconnect with your own peaceful heart, and to live a truly meaningful and joyful life.

You will learn:
• What causes stress, anxiety and worry
• How to stop this unpleasant and often debilitating cycle
• Meditation techniques you can apply to your life to remain peaceful and happy

Meditation is becoming increasingly recognized as an effective means to reduce stress and improve our quality of life, however it also has much deeper and far-reaching benefits that have been understood by Buddhist practitioners for thousands of years.

The benefits of meditation include:

– Effective means to reduce stress & anxiety
– Improves mindfulness & concentration
– Promotes a more positive approach to life
– Aids relaxation and letting go of tension

Each class consists of two guided meditations and instruction. Anyone can practice meditation and everyone is welcome to attend.
