Meditation in Tharpaland, Dates for 2018:
The Power of Positive Thinking
Meditation and Mindfulness
Whatever problems you want to solve in life and whatever goals you want to accomplish, the place to start is in your mind. Meditation is the key to staying positive and managing life successfully. Everyone can benefit from improving their mindfulness and concentration. The ability to overcome distractions enables us to complete daily activities without stress and is the foundation for training in the path of meditation which leads to profound happiness and peace of mind.
Our meditation courses and classes are open to everyone, whatever level of interest or experience, and give people the opportunity to learn more about meditation, Buddhism, and finding peace & happiness from within.
Each class is self contained. So, you can just drop in whenever you can, or attend the whole series if you wish. A Course Card (see below) enables you to attend the whole series at a discounted fee.
The benefits of meditation include:
- Improved concentration and focus in daily life
- Less stress, worry & anxiety
- Reduced irritation, anger & frustration
- Greater inner peace & happiness
- Increased confidence & self-esteem
- Improved mental and physical well being
- A positive outlook on life & better relationships
Breaking Bad Habits with Meditation and Mindfulness; 6 week Mindfulness course
Our bad habits are sources of suffering that often cause us to harm our self and others. We can feel helpless to change but Buddha teaches that bad mental habits, known as delusions, are temporary distortions in our thinking. Through understanding these teachings we increase our confidence in our potential to change and by putting these teachings into practice we can gain the power to overcome our bad habits, giving us real inner freedom and peace of mind.
In this 6 week course we will learn to understand how and why we create compulsive patterns of behaviour in the first place and consequently how we can let go of them and create the meaningful and joyful life that we actually seek. Everyone is welcome.
Controlling our Craving (3 weeks)
Do you suffer from constant craving? We have so many ordinary desires – more food, more drink, more money, more stimulation, bigger house, better car, different clothes, better reputation – the list is endless. But often when we try to satisfy these desires we are disappointed and become even more dissatisfied – wanting more of the same, or something different!
In this course we will learn to develop insight into the underlying causes of craving and addiction to gradually weaken them and finally break free completely to find real happiness and contentment free from uncontrolled desire, by training in the inner science of meditation and mindfulness.
- 14 June: Take control, stop worrying
- 21 June: Understanding our Cravings and Desires
- 28 June: Finding real satisfaction
