Mindful Living | Wednesday Evening | 7:30 – 9pm

 

Training in mindfulness and meditation have been understood by Buddhist practitioners for centuries to be the key to a happy and fulfilling life. These practices are not confined to when we are sitting down, but can be integrated into every aspect of our life – becoming the foundation for everything we think, say and do.

Contrary to what many people believe, mindfulness training is not simply about “being in the moment”, but was originally taught as a process of training to remember special ways of thinking that form the basis of pure and beneficial thoughts and actions. This 4-week course will provide a traditional but accessible presentation of mindfulness training, exploring three core practices derived from Buddha’s teachings that can transform our daily living into a path to pure peace and happiness.

25th Oct – Introduction to Mindful Living

This class will introduce what mindfulness is and how we can start to integrate it into our daily life.

1st Nov – Authentic Generosity

Giving or generosity is a powerful and beneficial habit that we can easily integrate into our daily interactions with others. This does not mean simply giving materially, but cultivating a genuine attitude of generosity that leads to an experience of inner wealth and fulfillment.

8th Nov – Mindfulness & Self-Control

The practice of being able to control one’s own body, speech and mind is an essential foundation for a happy life and a successful meditation practice. This class will make the pure disciplines taught by Buddha accessible to the modern practitioner and provide practical tools to help us kick our bad habits.

15th Nov – A Fresh Approach to Problems

Learn a fresh approach to the challenges we face in our everyday lives and cultivate a mind that is as strong as a mountain and as calm as the depths of an ocean.

 

Fees: Drop-in class, no need to book, £10 per class.  Special online price £30 for the 4- week series. Included in KMC London membership.
