How to be more focused

Weekly classes – August

Class fee £9 (weekly rate) ¦ free with membership

Learn how to develop and improve your concentration, overcome your distractions and cultivate your ability to concentrate in meditation.

Concentration is the nature of a peaceful mind. When our mind is concentrated it is relaxed, peaceful, alert and we feel happy. When meditating, the degree to which we can concentrate determines the effectiveness of our meditations. Therefore, in meditation, as in everyday life, the ability to overcome distractions is very important.

In this short course you will learn how to develop and improve your concentration, how to overcome your distractions and how to cultivate your ability to concentrate through training in meditation. You will also learn how mindfulness, alertness and concentration work together to improve your mental peace and well-being.

Through cultivating your concentration, you will be able to accomplish all your goals more easily, calmly and effectively.

Buddha taught powerful and blissful meditations to lead us on the path to realizing our full potential.

These meditations are called Mahamudra meditations and are profound methods for increasing our ability to concentrate, improving our wisdom and awakening our heart.

Gen Nyingpo will explain these powerful meditations in a practical way based on the extraordinary book, Oral Instructions of the Mahamudra.
