The Concentration Course

February 13, 20, 27, March 6

We are living in an age of distraction, where everyone is accustomed to constant stimulation and mental busyness, and it is very rare to enjoy even a moment of inner stillness.

What would it be like to not be distracted, and to be able to focus our mind on whatever we wish, for as long as we want?

With this course, you will learn how to access profound inner stillness through engaging in a systematic training that increases your concentration. Pure concentration causes our mind to attain a tranquil state, free from distractions, able to stay focused with power and clarity. These techniques can create a strong foundation for a successful daily meditation practice and give us confidence to carry this tranquillity and focus into our daily life.

This course is a perfect preparation for the 5 day silent Stillness Within retreat on Inchmurrin Island. On the retreat we will have the opportunity to put the instructions deeply into practice, to deepen our concentration and taste the bliss of suppleness.

Habits of Happy People

March 13, 20, 27, April 3

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 and possessions etc to achieve it. The reality is that none of these things can give us 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 through teachings and guided meditations how we can cultivate the happy minds of contentment, gratitude, acceptance and joy.

Of course one of the best habits we can develop is a daily meditation practice that will help us each day to be happy no matter what life throws at us.
