Living in the Moment

Often we can find that our mind oscillates between dwelling on the past or being anxious about the future. This mental busyness takes us away from the present, prevents us from enjoying the simple things in life, and makes it very difficult to connect with the peace and happiness that we have the potential to experience in every single moment.

This 7 week series will explain Buddhist meditation and practical ways to help to let go of our busy thoughts and to experience the lightness and joy that comes through the practice of mindfulness and living in the moment. This course is suitable for everyone.

Each class includes 2 guided meditations and a teaching.  Refreshments are served afterwards with an opportunity to discuss and ask questions. You can attend any or all of these great classes - each class is self-contained. Everybody is welcome!
