Start 2024 with a positive mind!

New Year is a symbol of possibility. We wish for change and hope our lives go in a better direction than before. For that to happen we need to connect with the potential that exists within our minds. The profound tools of transformation within Buddhist meditation gives us the ability to become the person we wish to be: more dynamic, confident, kinder, more loving, peaceful, and happier.

In this day retreat we will explore how we can all use Buddhist meditation to connect to profound dimensions within our mind. This connection gives us the ability to change at deep levels to become the person we wish to be.

This meditation course will kick start your year with peace and positivity. Discover your inner potential and learn how to use meditation to make yourself happy. Let go of negative feelings and embrace the positives. Improve your concentration and focus in daily life, be less stressed and irritable and learn how to develop a more positive outlook on life. 

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

Bring a vegetarian or vegan packed lunch or a dish to share in the lunch break, or pop out to frequent one of the many cafes locally. Complimentary hot drinks and light snacks will be available throughout the day. 

Members can attend our centre classes and retreats online or in person. For more information please see our Membership page.
