Introduction to Tantra

Sunday 1 March, 2–5pm

Although Tantra is very popular, not many people understand its real meaning. Tantra, is a special meditation practice to purify our world, our self, our enjoyments and activities, and is the quick path to enlightenment. Through studying and practicing Buddha’s Tantric teachings we are given a clear vision of what enlightenment is and special tools to accomplish this state swiftly.

Mindfulness and Living in the Moment

Saturday 21 March, 10am–1pm

Often we can find that our mind oscillates between dwelling on the past or being anxious about the future. This mental busyness takes us away from the present, prevents us from enjoying the simple things in life, and makes it very difficult to connect with the peace and happiness that we have the potential to experience in every single moment.

On this half day meditation workshop we will use Buddhist meditation and practical teachings to learn to let go of our busy thoughts and to experience the lightness and joy of mind that comes through the practice of mindfulness and living in the moment.

Contentment

Saturday 4 April, 10am–1pm

We spend our lives working hard to fulfil our wish to be happy. We have countless desires but it seems, no matter how much we try to fulfil them, we never feel completely satisfied. There’s always something else, something different, something more that we feel we need. Learn how it is possible to deeply relax and truly enjoy life, by liberating your mind from the negative impulse of uncontrolled desire and discover the lasting peace and true contentment that comes from inner peace.
