How to Make the Most of Every Day

English Meditation Class 

Tuesdays 7 – 8:30 pm

see calendar for dates and booking

It’s been a while now since we put on our masks, separated from each other, and said goodbye to our relatively free existence. Without our rituals of going to work, spending time with friends and family, and co-existing in shared spaces, most of us have had to adapt to a new, shrunken existence – the emotional toll is mounting. Everyday is starting to look the same and ‚Covid burnout‘ has become a very real thing.

How can we feel expansive, connected, and live from a place of possibility and optimism when there’s a sense of mass depletion and bleakness? Buddha shared specific teachings on how to respond to such challenging circumstances so that instead of taking us into a downward spiral they become the source of deep personal growth. By practicing these methods, our mental attitudes will shift and we will find that our difficult circumstances energize us and ultimately unlock our potential for real happiness, emotional freedom, love, wisdom and more.

Join for this series to learn how to begin living life as a spiritual adventure, in which both our challenges, as well as our joys become the very thing that enables us to grow.

These meditation classes are open to everyone interested in meditation and in solving their problems.

Each evening offers the opportunity to follow guided meditations and listen to a teaching on how to practically improve our mind to find real happiness in our daily life.

The teachings are based on the books of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, who presents Buddha’s ancient wisdom in a modern day presentation, suitable for everyone to understand and practice.

At the end of the class there is time for discussion and questions.

Treat yourself to the peace and fulfillment meditation can offer.

Everyone is welcome!

Why meditate?

Buddhist meditation gives us a profoundly optimistic perspective on our lives and our potential. Our human mind is amazing, and if we learn to harness its power, we can not only solve our day to day problems but put an end to all our suffering altogether. Eventually we can experience the clear, pure nature of our mind – a radiant, permanent happiness.

Where should we start if we want to discover the effectiveness of these instructions for ourselves? It is essential that we learn to meditate. Through meditation we can experience the potential and power of our own mind.

We will explore how to develop or improve a meditation practice that enables us to train our mind.

Meditation is a tried and tested method to lead us to a state of inner peace and profound joy.
