The Courses

TERM 1: Tuesdays, August 29 – October 3

Overcoming Stress & Anxiety

Problems and difficult situations are not hard to come by! Without methods to keep a calm & peaceful mind, we are blown about by problems like a balloon in the wind. In this course, you will learn essential ways of recognising where daily stress and anxiety actually comes from, how it can be reduced and how it can be finally eliminated.

  • Meditation techniques to help you connect to inner peace
  • Practical solutions which you can put into practice straight-away
  • Methods to overcome your obstacles to happiness

 

TERM 2: Tuesdays, October 24 – December 12

Living Mindfully

Mindfulness helps us to reduce our disturbing thoughts and distractions and to have a focused, clear and peaceful mind. By learning to be more mindful of how our thoughts and feelings are creating our reality, we can begin to gain mastery over our minds so we can transform our life.

  • Meditations which help you to watch & transform your mind
  • Become more skilful in responding to unpleasant feelings
  • Nurture your positive potential 

 

The Book

This course will be based on Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book, ‘How to Solve our Human Problems‘. A scientific exploration of the causes and solutions to our daily problems and difficulties, using Buddha’s teachings to change our world by changing our mind. Available at your class or from  Tharpa.com
