Weekly Drop-in Classes

Weekly Drop-in Classes

Our weekly meditation drop-in classes are taught by qualified Buddhist teachers, and are very easy to understand and apply to our daily lives. The classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners, and emphasize how to use meditation and subsequent practices amidst the busyness of modern, daily life. The union of Buddha’s teachings within our daily life is the essence of Kadampa Buddhism.  

More information on these classes and how to book coming soon.

The Five Habits of Happy People with Gen Dornying (1 Feb - 1 March)

Contrary to what many believe, happiness isn’t a rare, innate quality that only some possess. Everyone has the potential to be truly happy, including you.

Each week in this five-week course, you’ll be guided to uplifting states of mind, mental stillness and resilience. You’ll learn to become a happy person regardless of life’s difficulties, and an inspiring force for the people around you.

The course is designed sequentially, but you can join at any time. In-person and online.

Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully with Gen Dornying (weekly)

We are alive, therefore we will die.

This is the simplest, most obvious truth, yet few of us have come to terms with this fact. 

Once we do, we’ll find the energy to use our life in a meaningful way, and to help others through this very natural process.

Join us online as Gen Dornying continues to give commentary to the book Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, an invaluable handbook to help ourselves and others and become free from trivial worries and concerns. 

 Although this class is run sequentially, you can join anytime.

The Confidence to Change Drop-in Class (weekly)

No one wants to remain ordinary forever. But how do we become the happy, confident person everyone wants to be?
 
One of the many benefits of meditation is that it enables us to control the negative emotions associated with poor self-image. It also gives rise to a deep happiness and contentment. So when our mind is controlled through joyful meditation, we naturally feel comfortable with the person we are.
 
On this four week course, open to everyone, we will not only discover the art of genuine self-acceptance, but also develop the confidence to be the best version of ourself, bringing happiness to ourself and those we love.
 
This class will be held on:

The Stages of the Path with Natalie Eichelmann (weekly)

Everyone knows that meditation is beneficial, but still we find it difficult to develop a regular practice. 

The Indian master Atisha condensed Buddha’s 84,000 teachings into just 21 essential meditations to help us improve our experience of daily happiness. We call this the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, or Lamrim in Tibetan. Through practising these meditations we can learn to discover the inner peace of meditation and how to apply it to our daily life.

Take some time to sit down and meditate every Thursday evening and kick start your meditation practice.
