From Tragedy to Triumph

Sat 2 Jul | 9.30am – 1.15pm


Every living being has the same basic wish – to be happy and to avoid suffering. But how are we able to do this, when life can be so difficult at times? Can our problems, obstacles, fears and frustrations themselves be fuel for the growth and development of our happiness?
Buddha teaches that in order to change our world, we first have to change our minds. Contained within Buddha’s teachings is a special set of instructions called Lojong, or Training the Mind, which show us how to transform whatever circumstances we meet, whether good or bad, into opportunities for spiritual growth.

why meditate

Why Meditate?

Meditation enables you to unwind, relax, let go of worry and improve your overall sense of wellbeing. Through training in meditation it’s possible to gradually reduce and eliminate the negative states of mind that cause our unhappiness and replace them with positive, peaceful states.

What to Expect at a Class

Learn practical methods to solve the problems we face in daily life. Classes include two guided meditations and a teaching from one of our qualified teachers, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. Everybody is welcome. No experience is necessary.
