Unwind Your Mind
“When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subside and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.” The New Meditation Handbook, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
This course will give you the ideal conditions to unwind and clear your mind, reduce the stress of daily life and tap into your own lasting source of inner peace. Meditation is an effective way to deal with negative states of mind and create a sense of peace and mental freedom. By learning to identify the actual causes of our problems, we can begin to understand how to become free from them.
Everyone is welcome to attend and no experience of meditation is needed. The course comprises two one-hour sessions with a coffee/tea break with a chance to ask questions and browse our book shop. Each session includes a practical talk to help your meditation experience as well as two relaxing guided meditations.
Discover the power of meditation. Learn how reduce depression, anxiety, worry, stress and tension. And how to increase self-esteem, confidence, and inner good qualities. Meditation helps us to relax, find inner peace and be happier. Mental and physical well-being is improved as well as gaining a more positive outlook on life and better relationships.
The course will be taught by our Resident Teacher and Buddhist nun, Kelsang Rak-ma, who has been practising and teaching meditation for over 16 years.
