Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in our mind, not in external circumstances.

In this half day retreat Ian will explore how Meditation enables us to cultivate those states of mind that are conducive to peace and well being.

If our mind is peaceful we will be happy regardless of our external conditions, but if it is unpeaceful we will never find happiness.

This retreat will also explore ways we can integrate Meditation into every moment of our everyday life so our mind becomes immersed in the peace of meditation.

Everyone is welcome, beginners and experienced meditators alike. No special clothes are required and seating is provided in chairs and meditation cushions.

Complimentary light refreshments will be made available during the break.
