Overcoming Anxiety with Gen Dornying (5 - 26 May )
Anxiety and stress are an increasingly common problem for people in our busy, modern world. These states of mind prevent us from experiencing peace and enjoying life.
Meditation is an effective way to combat negative states of mind and create a sense of mental freedom. By gaining experience of Buddhist meditation and positive thinking techniques we can learn to control our mind, rather than allowing our mind to control us. Through this, we will be able to keep a calm and happy mind in all situations.
Open to practitioners of all levels. In-person and online.
The course is designed sequentially, but you can join at any time. In-person and online.

Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully with Gen Dornying (weekly)
This is the simplest, most obvious truth, yet few of us have come to terms with this fact.
Once we do, we’ll find the energy to use our life in a meaningful way, and to help others through this very natural process.
Join us online as Gen Dornying continues to give commentary to the book Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, an invaluable handbook to help ourselves and others and become free from trivial worries and concerns.
Although this class is run sequentially, you can join anytime.
Declutter Your Mind (weekly)
Why is it that so often our relationships and interactions with others result in a storm of painful emotions? Why do we feel so much grief when we are separated from those we care for? And why does what appears to be a “perfect match” so often end in conflict? The answer to all these questions can be found within Buddha’s teachings on love, desire and attachment.
By learning to distinguish between these very different, but often mixed states of mind, we can establish the foundation for lasting harmonious relationships, improve our experience of pure love and solve many of our daily problems.

A Complete Guide to Meditation with Natalie Eichelmann (weekly)
Without inner peace there is no real happiness at all. Problems, suffering and unhappiness do not exist outside the mind; they are feelings and thus part of our mind. Therefore, it is only by controlling our mind that we can permanently stop our problems and make ourself and others truly happy.
Our Thursday night drop-in course, a complete guide to meditation, will present twenty-one Buddhist meditation practices, actual methods to control your mind and experience lasting inner peace. It will also teach on how to prepare for meditation and transform everyday life into a spiritual path.
The course is based on the New Meditation Handbook by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. This extremely practical guide is an indispensable handbook for those seeking happiness and meaning in their lives.
Take some time out every Thursday evening to kick start your meditation practice.
