7, 14, 21 & 28 March | with Richard Hoyle

We all want to experience a happier and less stressful life, but often we try to achieve this by changing the external conditions. This may bring about some temporary relief, but sooner or later another problem or difficulty will occur.

The only method to find lasting peace and happiness is to learn how to let go of negative states of mind. Then our mind will be peaceful regardless of the external situation. On this four-week course, Richard Hoyle will introduce four ways to combat the negative minds that destroy our inner peace and make us feel irritable and unhappy.

Everyone is welcome, no previous experience is necessary


18 & 25 April | with Richard Hoyle and Lukas Bisek

Losing the people and things that we love and dealing with unwanted changes in our lives is an experience that we often find deeply painful. Although we long to find lasting pleasure, comfort and security in other people and things, the truth is that none of these relationships and situations will last forever. Every meeting ends in parting.

On this two-week course, Richard Hoyle and Lukas Bisek will explain how, through learning meditation techniques, we can cultivate a special wisdom that will help us to deal with the inevitable winds of change and loss in our lives, so that eventually we can always remain calm and happy. Through developing these meditation practices we can become a strong, wise and peaceful person and increase our ability to benefit both ourselves and others.

Everyone is welcome, no previous experience is necessary.
