Meditation classes

 

Everyone is welcome!

All classes at Joyful Land provide practical methods for improving our human nature and qualities through developing the capacity of our mind. The programs are open to everyone regardless of gender, age, nationality or spiritual background.

So much of the stress and tension we normally experience comes from our mind.  When our mind is peaceful we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness.

The Centre offers guided meditations, retreats, in depth study programs or drop-in classes, at the Centre, or in an area near you.
