Training in Happiness | Sept 20, 27, Oct 4, 11

There is great relief in recognizing that in order to be happy we can actively train in happiness. Happiness is a state of mind, and like any state of mind it can be strengthened through training, but to do so we need to know what are the actual causes of happiness. According to Buddha, authentic happiness does not depend upon amassing specific external conditions, such as wealth, beauty, status, etc., but rather its main ingredient is inner peace. And meditation is essential for training in inner peace and happiness.

On this 4 week course we will take a step by step approach and learn specific meditation techniques that are designed to help us experience and maintain authentic happiness and let go of unhappiness. We will also learn how we can continue to train in these positive states during our daily activities and how to bring happiness into others’ lives.

Deep Calm | Oct 25, Nov 1, 8, 15

On this course we will come to understand more about our own mind and the depth of peace we can find through coming to know the mind and how to use it correctly.

Our mind can be like a deep calm ocean, still and clear, but due to the busyness of our modern life our mind is more like a stormy ocean. Over the next four weeks we will explore the reasons our mind is often disturbed and realise that these many conceptions arise from the ocean of our mind itself. Then we will understand how it is truly possible to experience deep happiness and joy within our own mind.
