January Meditation Challenge: Six Habits of Happy People

Happiness is something that each one of us has the potential to experience, but often our habitual ways of thinking take us in the opposite direction. In six topics over three weeks, we’ll learn critical lessons about some of the habits of happy people that will enrich our life’s experience.
We will explore meditations and ways of thinking that uplift the mind. By carrying these into our day we can maintain a light, joyful attitude whatever life throws our way.
Evening classes will run on Mondays and Wednesdays; daytime classes will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Take the challenge to start 2024 with great habits that can last a lifetime.

Class schedule:

Week 1 | Class 1 (Mon 8 & Tues 9): Contentment – ‘When we are enjoying internal peace and happiness our craving for external sources of pleasure naturally declines and it is easy to remain content.’

Week 1 | Class 2 (Wed 10 & Thur 11): Acceptance – ‘Patient acceptance is often thought to be a weak and passive response to problems we have neither the power nor the courage to solve. In reality, however, being patient is far from being passive.’

Week 2 | Class 1 (Mon 15 & Tues 16): Gratitude – ‘If we recognise and appreciate the good qualities, especially the great kindness, of other living beings we will naturally cherish them and want to repay their kindness.’

Week 2 | Class 2 (Wed 17 & Thur 18): Joy – By learning to rejoice we can share everyone’s happiness.

Week 3 | Class 1 (Mon 22 & Tues 23): Generosity – ‘from giving comes wealth’ or ‘generosity is the main cause of great resources.’

Week 3 | Class 2 (Wed 24 & Thur 25): Wisdom – ‘… there is no greater method for experiencing peace of mind and happiness than to understand and meditate on emptiness.’
