Letting Go of Unhealthy Habits

May  4 | 11 | 18 | 25

We know all too well that unwanted bad habits can cause us pain and suffering and can hurt those around us too. Despite our best efforts to alter our behaviour, we can feel stuck and change seems impossible.

Through Buddha’s teachings we can learn that change and transformation are part of our very nature as human beings.  Instead of clinging to the idea that we are ordinary and limited, the practice of meditation and mindfulness open the door to relating to our capacity for positive transformation.  Drawing upon the practical and profound wisdom of Buddha’s teachings this course will combine guided meditation and simple methods we can practice in our busy life.  Suitable for newcomers and experienced students alike.

Recommended reading: ‘Transform Your Life’ and ‘How to Solve our Human Problems,’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, both available in our branch class shop.

Wake Up Smiling

June  8 | 15 | 22 | 29

All too often we wake up with the weight of the world already on our shoulders.  As soon as we awake we are faced with a barrage of uncontrolled thoughts, feelings, and expectations, which we often carry with us throughout the day.  Although on one level we perhaps know theoretically it doesn’t have to be like this, but generally we don’t know practically how to reliably shift our mind in a more positive direction and keep it there.

This course will address this common problem by using meditations and mindfulness that highlight the kindness we receive every day from others. By using these methods in daily life we can experience an inner lightness and joy upon waking and live each day with fresh energy and vigour.

Recommended reading: ‘Eight Steps to Happiness’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
