Quieten Your Mind | May 17, 24, 31

In busy modern life we have so many things to distract us. How does this affect you?

Most people find their mind is constantly on the move, constantly jumping from one thing to another and the noisy internal chatter never stops! By the end of the day we feel tired and scattered. But it doesn’t need to be like this. . .

On this course you can learn meditations to quieten the mind and become more mindful of the present. You will find that you can accomplish more, while feeling peaceful and thinking more clearly.

Learn to love being still in the company of your own mind!

Hope, Happiness & Wellbeing | June 7, 14, 21, 28

We often tend to focus on problems. It can seem both our personal life, and the world at large moves from one crisis to another. Our struggles can feel hopeless, we may be pessimistic about our own future and that of the world. In such circumstances, we feel unhappy, and can neglect our wellbeing.

In this series we will consider how it is always possible to find meaning and strength in our difficulties, how it is realistic to believe we can all have a bright future, and how we have the power to create a better world for ourselves and others right now.
