Change Your Mind, Change Your World

Thursdays 7pm – 8.30pm

Change Your Mind, Change Your World

Everything comes from the mind – all our experiences, our highs and lows, our joys and tears. Therefore, if we can change our mind, we can change our world. When we understand how the world we see, the problems we experience and the happiness we know, are dependant on our mind, we will be confident that we can definitely use simple meditation techniques and our new-found wisdom to train our mind and experience the world with purpose, positivity and joy.

These classes are suitable for beginners as well as those with experience of meditation. Everyone is welcome. Start attending this class at any time.

Meditation Toolkit

These classes are suitable for beginners as well as those with experience of meditation. Everyone is welcome. Start attending this class at any time.

Enjoy a series of classes exploring the practical side of meditation. What do we do during meditation? How do I deal with my busy thoughts? What techniques should I use? How do I find the motivation? These classes will give you the answers, enabling you to experience meditations which are enjoyable and effective.

Meditation is a practical means to overcome the everyday trials and tribulations of our lives. It brings joy, contentment, and lasting happiness into our lives. Meditation is not about sitting in awkward positions or blanking our minds and trying not to think! So, during these classes we will use simple and clear explanations with a very practical emphasis to explore the various elements which make up successful meditation and which will help us maintain a beneficial meditation practice.
