Staying strong when things go wrong

Usually we find it difficult to control our mind. It seems as if our mind is like a balloon blown around in the wind – blown here and there by external circumstances.

If things go well, our mind is happy, but if they go badly our mind is unhappy.

On this course we will explore how we can develop the freedom to choose happiness. We will learn how we can do this by relying upon positive states of mind instead of external objects to make us happy.

Experienced Teacher, Mark Bernardi will teach this course

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.
