Mindfulness for Modern Living

September 10, 17, 24 and October 1, 2016
$83 plus GST
In the fast pace of our work and personal lives our attention is easily scattered and our mind cluttered with endless distractions. Training in mindfulness gives us the power to overcome disturbing thoughts and to stay focused on what brings peace of mind.

In this course we will focus on Buddhist methods for understanding our mind. By gradually letting go of distracting thoughts and mental busyness we can uncover our potential to be happy and peaceful all the time.

This course will help restore our focus on what’s important, so we can re-enter our daily life with a confident ability to take on life’s difficulties with a balanced mind.

Buddhist Equanimity in a Polarized World

October 22, 29, November 5 and 19, 2016
$83 plus GST
We live in a diverse world, and in a world that can feel increasingly polarized. Despite our differences, we all continue to share a common human experience.

How can we find more commonality and similarity, more love and equanimity? There is no more vital mind for us to nurture than love. This beautiful mind vastly improves our own lives while also helping us to improve the lives of others. Love is not something outside of us. It is a quality we all have naturally within our mind.

This course will help us learn to access our heart of love, nurturing and expanding it so that we truly bring love into this world.
