This course is essential for everyone who wishes to understand how to be successful in their meditation.
Meditation has many benefits from simple relaxation to helping us keep a positive, peaceful outlook at all times. These results depend upon our meditation being effective.
In this 7-week course, you will learn the essential elements of meditation so you can understand how to improve your meditation every day.
There are various aspects of the mind that you will need to understand if your mind is to have the strength, power, and stability to meditate. These include:
- What to focus upon in meditation
- How to gain mindfulness
- Strengthening concentration
- Making our mind positive
Like training a weak body needs exercises, our distracted mind also needs to train in mental exercise to strengthen the qualities of mind that enable successful meditation.

These classes will be taught by our Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Chogma.
Classes generally consist of a breathing meditation to still the mind, making us more relaxed. Then a teaching giving us practical methods to solve our daily problems, and maintain a happy mind throughout difficult situations. There is then a contemplative meditation on the teaching, deepening our understanding.
There is plenty of time to ask questions and discuss experiences with other class members. Each class also finishes with light refreshments.
Everyone can benefit from these teachings, taking them on board in what ever way is comfortable for you.
There is no need to book or bring anything, just turn up on the evening, relax, and enjoy the inner peace that meditation brings.
