Create Your Own Happiness: Meditations for Controlling our Mind
Our experience of happiness is determined by how we think and act. What if we could improve the quality of our life and our relationships just by reshaping our thoughts and intentions?
By learning a series of simple meditation techniques that have been passed down for centuries, you will gain the freedom to shape your life by controlling your mind.
Just drop in, no need to pre-register. Everyone welcome!
Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation to reduce stress and calm the body and mind. There will then be a short teaching on how to apply meditation to daily life to increase our positive minds and decrease negative minds like stress and anger.
