Deep Calm | Aug 23, 30, Sept 6, 13

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. On this course 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.
