(morning workshop in Brecon with Kadam Mike Garside)
Great for beginners, this practical course will introduce you to the basics of meditation.
Everyone wants a happy mind: less worry and conflict, more love, more joy. But to make that happen we have to work at it. We need to actively train our minds. Applying the practice of meditation along with Buddha’s powerful insights gives us the tools to begin bringing about the changes we long for.
In this course we will learn meditation and mindfulness techniques so that we can connect directly to a more peaceful mind. Through this process we begin to let go of the sources of conflict and worry in our lives. The result is not only more joy in our own lives, but we also bring joy and benefit into the lives of others.
No special clothing required. Everyone is welcome, no matter your level of experience in meditation.
