Apr 2, 10, 17, 24 |  May  8, 15, 22 | June 5, 12, 19, 26

Beginning January 9 these classes will take you deeper into Buddhist teachings from the profound text by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche - How to Understand the Mind.

The mind is the source of all happiness and suffering yet most of us have only a vague idea of how our mind works! This book offers you a deep insight into your mind and shows how an understanding of its nature can be used practically in everyday experience to improve your life.

Although the classes follow the series of teachings given in the book, they can also be attended as individual classes. Some experience of meditation and understanding of Buddhism is recommended.

Come along and learn more about your mind and how to make yourself happy with these ongoing drop-in classes.
