Finding Clarity Within

March 11, 18, 25

April 1,

Like a clear blue sky, our mind is by nature clear, spacious, and pure.  When the turbulence of our restless mind is reduced through meditation, we will naturally experience the real nature of our mind–peaceful, clear, and spacious. This series of classes will explore meditations that reveal the real nature of your mind–its vast potential for peace, clarity, and inner strength.  Despite the unexpected problems of everyday life, if we develop this clear, calm mind, we can deal positively and constructively with anything life throws our way.

Wake Up Smiling

April 22, 29

May 6, 13, 20

We can often find it difficult to develop and maintain a positive outlook.  We can feel bombarded by negativity from both the external conditions and our own thoughts and attitudes.  This often leads to a feeling of anxiety, frustration and depression.

In this series of classes we will look at how we can begin to tackle this negativity through understanding Buddhist teachings and practicing meditation in our daily life.  Through cultivating space in our own mind we can begin to see what is causing our problems and difficulties and how we can resolve them easily, with a calm and peaceful mind.

Heart of Healing

June 3, 10, 17, 24

July 1, 8

‘Since physical pain is closely related to the tension and stress in our mind, as our mind relaxes we may discover that the physical pain actually subsides and our body is able to heal itself’ – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Based on an awareness of the close relationship between our body and mind, this series of classes explores the causes of sickness and presents a practical approach to mental and physical health.  This series is a perfect introduction to the healing practice known as ‘taking and giving’ a traditional meditation practiced for many generations that has been traditionally used to heal body and mind and to develop our good qualities of loving kindness and compassion for others.
