Happiness is something that each one of us has the potential to experience, but often our habitual ways of thinking take us in the opposite direction. This engaging meditation course will teach critical lessons about some of the habits of happy people that will enrich your life’s experience.

We will explore several meditations and ways of thinking that uplift the mind and how by carrying these with mindfulness into our day we can maintain a light, joyful attitude whatever life throws our way. Everyone is welcome to attend and no previous experience is necessary.

Thank you for the wonderful course you have been providing online since lockdown.  Before lockdown myself and my friend had started to attend the drop in Thursday lunch time sessions which were held at the Kadampa centre in Reading. I hadn’t previously attended a session by Gen Nyingpo but after 8 weeks of meditating with Gen Nyingpo I have felt really uplifted by her style of teaching and I really love the light humour she displays which really resonates with me.

Firstly I want to say thank you SO much for the amazing online meditation courses that you’ve been running. They’ve been invaluable to me during lockdown. I don’t know where to start on how much your wisdom has helped me and I’m now making an effort to meditate daily.

The online teachings and mediations having helped me focus during these strange lockdown times. They give you much to think about and the best ways to lead your life, especially as we move forward into a new way of social interaction. The overall messages – Be patient and Be kind. Thoroughly recommended.

advice for online classes

Please find a comfortable and quiet place that you consider special in your home or room. Prepare yourself before the class begins by turning off your phone, avoiding distractions, making sure you can focus on the teaching for its duration. Have a notebook to write down some of the key points of the teaching that you want to remember and integrate in your life. Enjoy!

We pray for everyone who is experiencing stress and anxiety, and especially for those who are ill. May everyone enjoy good health, peace and happiness.

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.
