About this course

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.

Week 1. Recognising our limitless potential for happiness

Week 2. Letting go of unhappiness

Week 3. Being kind to ourself and others

Week 4. The joy of mental freedom
