No need to bring anything or wear special clothes – just something comfortable to sit on the floor or on a chair. Feel free to drop in any or every week. Everyone welcome!

●Stress-free Living(Mar 8, 15, 22)

・Mar 8:
The wish to control or change the actions and behaviour of our nearest and and dearest can give rise to a lot of mental tension and stress. Using meditation techniques, we can separate the helpful aspects of our feelings towards the people in our daily lives from the unhelpful aspects, and experience relaxation and peace from within.

・Mar 15:
Learn about the benefits of meditation and in particular the diverse benefits of improving our concentration. We will meditate on our mind being like clear still water. This is very calming and conducive to a clear and alert mental state.

・Mar 22:
When we notice negative behaviour in others, it’s very easy for us to engage in powerful “meditation” on others’ faults and thereby cause ourselves additional unnecessary stress and disturbance! Let’s use meditation to restore balance and perspective to the way we view others, understanding that just as we would not blame our friend for catching a cold, so we can reduce our blaming of others for their own unhelpful mental habits.
