Why come to KMC Southampton?

KMC Southampton offers methods for everyone to reduce stress, anxiety, irritation and other negative states of mind and learn instead how to become peaceful, relaxed and patient through meditation and mindfulness techniques. We also offer deeper courses and study programmes on Modern Buddhism.

Don’t hesitate to come in and see for yourself, and, if you have the time, join us for one of the many meditation & mindfulness sessions throughout the week.

Freedom from Stress & Anger | 4-Week Course

Freedom from Stress & Anger | 4-Week Course

Starting w/c 16th Sept

** On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays**
Feeling stressed, frustrated, irritated and sometimes really angry and arise all too easily. None of us want these feelings, yet they keep arising. By using meditation techniques we learn how to identify the development of them early enough so we can stop these negative trains of thoughts from before they take over.

This half day workshop is designed for those wishing to get an overview and introduction to the practice of meditation. Once we learn how to focus the mind, we discover that naturally from within we can experience a deep sense of peace and happiness and most of the stress and tension we experience in daily life will dissolve away.
