The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.
If you are new to meditation or would like to improve your meditation please come join us for this practical and enjoyable half day course. Chairs or cushions will be provided and refreshments will be served during the break.
Session 1 – 10am – 11am
Break 11am – 11:20am
