When the mind is free from the clouds of distracting conceptions it becomes bright and clear, like a cloudless sky”

New Topics this Winter

This winter, our series of classes from January to March are based on gaining control of our thoughts with mindfulness and gaining freedom from negative patterns of thought. Changing these negative patterns of thought is hugely liberating opening us up to a joyful, creative and game changing approach to experiencing our lives and our relationships.

Through gaining familiarity with correct thoughts, thoughts based on love, compassion and wisdom, we can gain control over our mind and bring meaning and harmony into our life.
