This workshop is the perfect introduction to meditation.
Sat Jan 20th | 10:30 – 1:00pm | £15
This half-day workshop provides a special opportunity to take a break from our busy activities and hectic pace of life.
Our Principal Teacher, Gen Lekma will explain the basics of meditation. She will gently guide simple meditations that help us leave behind our stress and concerns, and allow our mind to become calm and peaceful.
The purpose of meditation is to cultivate positive states of mind, conducive to peace and well-being, and overcome negative habits of mind. Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external situations. If our mind is peaceful we will experience happiness, regardless of our external circumstances, but if it is unpeaceful we will never find happiness, no matter how successful we are in improving our external conditions. The method to make our mind peaceful is through meditation.
Everyone is welcome. Don’t miss!
