Mindfulness in Modern Life

Mindfulness is a popular and important topic these days, but do we know how to practice it?
What is mindfulness?
How can we use it correctly to help ourselves and others?
What are the methods to develop mindfulness?
All will be explained in a practical and easy to understand way. Plus, with meditations designed specifically to help improve mindfulness, we can gain our own personal experience of how mindfulness helps and feel for ourselves how enjoyable it is. We can then take this into our daily life to continue developing our peace of mind.

Life and Death

Sat 8th November
10.30am – 4pm

Death is an inevitable part of life. Everyone knows it, but often we ignore it and shy away from the fact.
But then people around us die, or we have a health scare and we are forced to face up to it.
How comforting it would be to know we could face our own death confidently and peacefully.
How meaningful it would be if we could help those who are dying and even those who have died.
On this day course we will learn profound techniques to help the dying and deceased and prepare for our own death.

Stop Stressing – Start Living

Sat 13th December
10am – 1pm

It seems whatever our lifestyle, we will at times experience stress and anxiety. So much of the stress and tension we experience comes from our mind and many of our daily problems, such as relationship difficulties and ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress.

On this morning course we will explore how Buddhist meditation, combined with a change in our perspective on life, can enable us to reduce and finally eliminate stress. By applying this advice in our daily life we will come to enjoy a more relaxed and peaceful mind.

Cost: £10 includes refreshments
