Destination: Inner peace

April 27 ¦ May 4 ¦ 11 ¦ 18

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 8 ¦ 15 ¦ 22 ¦ 29

​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 6 ¦ 13 ¦ 20

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.
