Introduction to Meditation
a half day meditation course

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions. 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.
Through training in meditation we can learn how to make our mind calm and peaceful. In particular we can learn to overcome obstacles to our meditation practice: mental sinking, mental wandering and mental excitement.
This half day course is suitable for beginners and for for advanced meditators who need to refresh their practice. Everyone is welcome.
