Meditation is associated associated with all religions and this may be because it taps into our spiritual side or as some like to call it our being. But thus course will not favor any religious practice.

 

The course does however, offer the opportunity for you to become more compassionate towards yourself and others.

 

My personal definition of the practice of meditation is

 

"Take time out, in stillness/ chanting, observe your thoughts and how your body feels, you will start to lose your fear of yourself."

THE SCIENCE OF HAPPINESS

 

When our mind is experiencing an incessant flow of uncomfortable emotions and negative thoughts then we can say that at that time we are UNHAPPY. On the contrary when our mind is feeling at ease, confident and light at that time we can say that we are HAPPY. The practices of meditation and mindfulness taught within Buddhism reveal the technology of happiness and wellbeing, how we can cultivate the causes of happiness and let go of the causes of unhappiness within our own heart. In this six week course we will learn simple but powerful methods to heal and strengthen our mind so that can enjoy our life more.
