Learn to Meditate | Tuesdays 7-8.15pm | Aug 23 & 30
TRIED AND TESTED by people for hundreds of years, meditation is proven to reduce stress, improve our mood, focus and mental clarity and enhance our overall sense of well-being. But meditation is so much more than just something that gives rise to a bit more peace. If we incorporate the techniques of meditation into our daily life both on and off the cushion, we will discover greater and greater levels of happiness and ultimately attain the state of full enlightenment.
AT THIS TWO WEEK SERIES OF DROP-IN CLASSES, Buddhist Teacher Diana Waterhouse will explain simple and effective meditations that you can use to increase your happiness, as well as tools you can incorporate into your day-to-day life to bring about a greater sense of inner peace and mental calm. By practising meditation systemtically we can uproot the states of mind that are the source of all our suffering and achieve a state of complete mental freedom.
Overcoming Craving & Attachment | Tuesdays 7-8.15pm | Sep 6, 13 & 20
WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE: rummaging in the pantry even though you were just there 10 minutes ago. The ill-advised text to an ex, or eating mouthful after mouthful of potato chips even though we’ve had enough already.
AFTERWARDS, HOW DO YOU FEEL? Completely satisfied and peaceful – or angry at yourself for giving in (again)? Or do you just want more?
WE’VE GOT A SECRET FOR YOU: SUGAR ISN’T THE PROBLEM. Neither are cigarettes, alcohol or people. The problem is the mind of craving itself. This uncontrolled desire causes us so much unhappiness, anxiety, relationship difficulties and addiction problems. It’s the root of all our suffering.
AT THIS SERIES OF DROP-IN MEDITATION CLASSES, Buddhist Teacher Diana Waterhouse will explain in detail the ins-and-outs of the minds of craving, attachment and uncontrolled desire and how to overcome them.
LEARN HOW TO FILL THE GAP IN YOUR HEART by finding real satisfaction and inner peace inside you. By finding this inner contentment, our objects of craving will no longer have the power to disturb our peaceful mind or control our behaviour and we will finally enjoy real mental freedom.
