Meditation is a method for cultivating inner peace, and mindfulness enables us to bring this peace with us into our daily lives. In these increasingly busy and stressful lives we all need to find a way to make our mind peaceful because genuine and lasting happiness is impossible without inner peace. Through meditation we learn to gradually reduce states of mind that produce stress and unhappiness- like anxiety, anger, fear, dependency, jealousy, low self-esteem and meaninglessness- and replace them with open, loving, wise and peaceful states. These classes are suitable for everyone, beginners and more experienced meditators alike.

Find out about what to expect at a meditation class and about the courses.

"Meditation is a mind that concentrates on a virtuous object, and that is the main cause of mental peace. The practice of meditation is a method for acquainting our mind with virtue. The more familiar our mind is with virtue, the calmer and more peaceful it becomes. Therefore, it is important to train our mind through meditation. By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to control our mind regardless of the external circumstances. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness. If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances."
