Event description
This engaging series will teach vital lessons about some of the habits of happy people that will enrich your life’s experience.

About this Event

CLASS LINK IS VALID FOR 7 DAYS - if you can't make it on Wednesday at 1pm, now you can watch at a time to suit you. Or watch it again!

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.

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.

4 November – 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.

11 November – 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.

18 November – 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.

25 November – 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.

2 December - Peace and freedom from distraction.

In this session we will learn:

- The faults of mental distraction or disturbance

- The benefits of a peaceful mind

- Inner peace is the source of all happiness.

- The levels of inner peace

9 December – Generosity

The mind of generosity is a light, warm and expansive mind and is very different to the clingy mind tightly holding on to ‘me and mine’.

Nagarjuna said ‘From giving comes wealth.’ In this session we will look at the benefits of giving – including the Karmic effect of giving - both for others and for ourselves.

This course is also available to book as a full 6-week course at the discounted price of £30. Please CLICK HERE for details .
