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.

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 and seating is on chairs - just turn up on the evening, relax, and enjoy the inner peace that meditation brings.
