What is the secret to happiness?
Why is happiness often so elusive?
We tend to make the attainment of happiness more complicated than it actually is, by believing that we need things such as success, praise, status, looks, material possessions and so forth to achieve it.
And although we should definitely enjoy all of these, they cannot provide us with lasting happiness and chasing them actually makes us prone to anxiety, frustration and disappointment.
Buddha explains simple attitudes that we can all learn to cultivate, that will make us really happy.
On this course we will explore several meditations and ways of thinking that uplift the mind and we’ll see that by carrying these with mindfulness into our day, we can maintain a light, joyful attitude whatever life throws our way.
Our general programme classes include Dharma teachings along with guided meditations. Each class is self-contained and is also presented as part of a series. Drop into any class you like. These classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced meditation practitioners. No special clothing is required. Most people sit on chairs. Everyone welcome!
