Destination: Inner peace

April 26 ¦ May 3 ¦ 10 ¦ 17 ¦ 24

​Embark on an inner journey leading to increasing levels of mental peace. On this course we will learn meditations that enable a deep inner transformation of mind. We will also learn how to use the experiences and understanding that we develop in meditation to bring benefit in our daily life.

The art of now – living in the moment

June 7 ¦ 14 ¦ 21 ¦ 28

​In our busy lives we find it very difficult to relax and enjoy the moment. Even while we are doing things we like, our mind is never in the present – we are constantly making plans for the future, worrying about what might happen next, and never really feeling content.

On this course we will learn meditations to help us let go of this limiting mental habit. Through this we will develop a peaceful mind, be able to make the most of every moment of our life and begin to uncover its true meaning.

Surfing life’s problems

July 5 ¦ 12 ¦ 19

It would be lovely to be able to cruise through the struggles and issues we normally have, but how? We need to learn and practice the methods that give us the ability to transform our worries and pressures into opportunities for developing and helping ourself and others. On this course we have an opportunity to learn just that.

Simply meditate

August 16 ¦ 23 ¦ 30

Rejuvenate with a gentle, guided meditation to calm and clear the mind, let go of tension and get re-focused for the rest of your day. Learn and practice meditations to improve mindfulness, helping us to subdue our distractions and be more present, in the moment, with a positive state of mind.

Be light, be positive

September 6 ¦ 13 ¦ 20 ¦ 27 ¦ October 4

It’s difficult to be positive when you’re feeling anxious, irritated, or stressed, yet these experiences are far too common in our hectic world. Mindfulness and meditation are proven methods to discover the underlying causes of all your negative states of mind and replace them with positive and beneficial states of mind instead. On this course learn how you can free yourself from the harmful effects of negativity and become relaxed, positive and confident in your everyday activities.

Meditation teacher Bridget Burrows has studied Kadampa Buddhism nearly 20 years and her knowledge and wisdom is truly inspirational.

She is friendly and approachable for advice on any aspect of Buddhism or Meditation and has a deep understanding of the Buddhist Path.

Parking

Plenty of free parking is available on the Dogsthorpe Rd and the surrounding streets. Please park carefully with consideration for our neighbours. Thank you

Accessibility

The community areas of the centre are all on the ground floor. There is a smooth path accessible through the gate on the corner of Dogsthorpe Road and Woodbyth Road leading to the front door. There is one small, curved step to the door, one small up-and-over door sill into the porch and another into the hallway. Each step is no higher than 4 inches (10cm). The doors can be opened wide enough to easily accommodate someone in a wheelchair. We are planning to make a removable ramp to avoid the need to be pushed over the steps and currently have one ramp which fits into the porch. In the interim we ask that, if you have them, please bring any portable ramps of your own to assist you over the steps. Once in the hallway, all areas of the centre are accessible. There is room for a wheelchair to fit face-on to the toilet to facilitate forward transfers.

We meditate on straight-backed conference-style chairs and there are cushions on which you can rest your feet to make yourself comfortable. The meditation room is fully accessible with plenty of room for a wheelchair.

If you have any other queries please contact us at the centre. We are happy to help you in any way we can.

Shop

We have a bookshop selling meditation books and CDs. You are welcome to make purchases during the course. We accept cash, card payments and cheques.
