Course Description

Meditation. Everyone knows it’s good for you. It’s scientifically proven to reduce stress, make us feel better about ourselves and improve our overall sense of well-being. 

But what exactly is meditation? And how can we apply it in our daily life to improve our happiness, our interactions with others and our quality of life in general?

At this online workshop, Buddhist Teacher Diana will answer these questions, and explain the art of meditation as taught by Buddha. Diana will explain how simple changes to our way of thinking and approach to everyday situations will enable us to enjoy more happiness, inner peace, contentment and satisfaction.

In the first session we will learn the basics of meditation, how to meditate, and how we can start a meditation practice at home. We will also learn how vast the practice of meditation actually is, and how we can use different meditations to help us navigate almost any problem we find ourself confronted with.

In the second session we will learn how we can use the art of positive thinking in our daily life to improve all our experiences. This session will focus on key positive thinking techniques that we can easily apply to any situation to boost our happiness and reduce our painful feelings.

Whether you are new to meditation or have many years’ experience, this course will give you the tools and confidence you need to meditate as well as practical tips to stay positive and calm in the busyness of daily life.
