THE HABITS OF HAPPY PEOPLE

A 4 week meditation course focussing on simple but profound attitudes from the Buddhist tradition that lead to happiness, which anyone can cultivate.

We tend to make the attainment of happiness more complicated than it actually is, by believing that we need things such as success, praise and possessions to achieve it. The reality is that happiness is an inside job, and arises by cultivating positive states of mind.

On this course we will explore through teachings and meditations how we can cultivate the happy minds of contentment, acceptance, gratitude and joy.

Week 1: Contentment

‘Without contentment a rich man will think that 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

Week 2: Acceptance

Through applying Buddhas teachings on patient acceptance we can learn how to develop and maintain a calm and joyful mind even in challenging circumstances

Week 3: Gratitude

Everywhere we look we can find the kindness of others. The truth is that we are interconnected in a web of kindness from which to is impossible to separate ourselves. Learning to appreciate this kindness helps us overcome the negative thoughts that steal our happiness.

Week 4: Joy

Joyous effort is a mind that delights in virtue. A mind that delights in developing the causes of happiness is joyfully creating joy!


Everybody is welcome. No previous meditation experience is necessary. Drop in to any class or come to the whole series

We look forward to meeting you :)
