Description

Habits of Happy People | 4-week Mindfulness series | with Buddhist teacher Michal O'Shea

Happiness is something that each one of us has the potential to experience, but often our habitual ways of thinking take us in the opposite direction. This engaging 4-week mindfulness series will teach critical lessons about some of the habits of happy people that will enrich your life’s experience.

We will explore several meditations and ways of thinking that uplift the mind and how by carrying these with mindfulness into our day we can maintain a light, joyful attitude whatever life throws our way. Everyone is welcome to attend this series of classes. No previous experience necessary.

22nd Nov – Contentment

“Without contentment, a rich man will think he is poor”- Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. By learning to be happy with what we have we can overcome our overwhelming dissatisfaction, simplify our life and be able to focus more easily on internal changes.

29th Nov – Acceptance

In this class, we will learn how to maintain a calm and joyful mind even in the most challenging circumstances through applying Buddha’s teachings on patient acceptance.

6th Dec – Joy

It is very easy to allow our mind to focus in ways that are contradictory with our basic wish to be happy. This class will explore teachings and meditations that enable us to keep a positive mind and overcome negative thoughts such as jealousy, competitiveness and discouragement.

13th Dec – Gratitude

We can get so stuck focusing on the negative that we can forget to appreciate all the benefit we receive from others. By maintaining an awareness of the kindness of others in our life we can keep a positive, grateful mind that will make us more warm and well disposed towards others and protect us from unhappy thoughts.
