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.

"Through sincerely training in meditation on Modern Buddhism you will attain spiritual realisations, which lead you to permanent liberation from all the sufferings of this life and countless future lives. There is no greater meaning than this. Even temporarily, whenever you experience problems, unpleasant feelings, depression or unhappiness you can solve these problems immediately by transforming your mind into peace through your meditation practice. The benefits of meditation are immeasurable".
