CHOOSE HAPPINESS IN 2019

£32 FOR 4-WEEK MEDITATION SERIES | £10 PER CLASS DROP-IN (NO NEED TO BOOK IN ADVANCE)

Everybody wants to be happy and we look for it in every area of our life – at work, in our relationships, our hobbies and so forth. However, in our pursuit for happiness many people find just the opposite: we feel unhappy, depressed or simply lack self-esteem. Sometimes it feels like we’ve done everything right: we’ve got the job, success, car house, money, family and yet these things did not bring the happiness we thought they would. We are left questioning: Why am I so sad and unhappy? Why do these things not make me feel better in the long run?

Buddha’s answer to all these questions is very simple: we are looking in the wrong place! Until now we have tried to find happiness by constantly changing our external situation- we change partner or job, try to look good, achieve success but the good feelings never last and with these attainments come many things we don’t want. Buddha’s teachings tell us: if we want authentic lasting happiness, then rather than depending upon changing external conditions, you must learn to make yourself happy through establishing peace within your own mind.

This 4-week course provides an opportunity to do just that, to learn how to make ourselves happy by establishing its causes from within. Each week will explore the topic from a different angle and learn practical instructions we can apply immediately in our lives. Although it is beneficial to try and attend the whole series, the classes are self-contained and so can also be attended on a drop-in basis. No previous experience is necessary.
