COURSE CONTENT

  • Practical methods to relax body and mind, and work with stress
  • Ideal for beginners and those wanting to refresh their meditation
  • Includes simple visualisations to improve concentration
  • Plus a special meditation to cultivate our potential

    The purpose of meditation is to develop those states of mind that are conducive to peace, happiness and well-being, and to eradicate those that are not.

    If we examine our life we will discover that much of our time and energy is devoted to daily activities, including seeking material and emotional security, enjoying ourselves and establishing a good reputation. Although these things can make us happy for a short time, they are not able to provide the deep lasting contentment that we long for. Sooner or later our happiness turns into dissatisfaction, and we find ourselves engaged in the pursuit of more worldly pleasures.


    If lasting fulfilment cannot be found outside of ourself, then where can it be found? Buddha explains happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies within our mind, not in external circumstances. The purpose of meditation is to cultivate and develop our mind so it becomes peaceful, positive and happy.

    In this half-day course, we explore the essential knowledge we need and how to take the first steps of training in meditation and is ideal for beginners and those wanting to refresh their daily meditation.

    Everyone welcome.


This course is for people living in the North-Mid Wales area. Please contact your local centre if you live outside this area.
