Learn how to adopt the habits of happy people in this five-week series of classes. Weekly classes are suitable for everyone. In each class a different aspect of meditation and Buddhism is explained. The classes are self-contained so you can watch any week. Classes begin with a simple guided breathing meditation followed by a teaching and a second guided meditation based on the topic. No meditation experience is necessary, classes are suitable for beginners and experienced meditators alike. Everyone is welcome. This class is available to book in-person or as a livestream video for you to watch at home. Each video class is available for one week after it is published giving you the flexibility to watch at a time that suits you.
Happiness is something that each of us has the potential to experience, but often our habitual ways of thinking take us in the opposite direction. In this engaging series of classes, we will learn critical lessons about some of the habits of happy people that, if we apply them, will enrich our experience of life. We will explore several meditations and ways of thinking that uplift the mind. If we then carry these perspectives into our day, we can maintain a light, joyful attitude whatever life throws our way.
We are now open for in-person classes. Places are limited so please book in advance. We don’t accept walk-ins for our weekly classes. We offer three different days/times for you to attend the classes. Classes are also available to watch at home. Each video class will be available to view for one week after it is published.
