    The eight worldly concerns are eight anxieties that make it difficult for us to maintain a happy mind. When our life is constrained by these eight worries, we lose sight of what matters to us the most and spend our energy pursuing things that we know, in our heart of hearts, won’t bring the lasting satisfaction
    that we desire. By contrast, a life free from the eight worldly concerns is a life spent focusing on the things we really care about. During this course Steve, will explain
    what the eight worldly concerns are, how to recognise them within our own minds, and how to start to eliminate them from our daily life.

Living in The Moment | December 1, 8, 15

Often we can find that our mind oscillates between dwelling on the past or being anxious about the future. This mental busyness takes us away from the present, prevents us from enjoying the simple things in life, and makes it very difficult to connect with the peace and happiness that we have the potential to experience in every single moment.

On this three week course we will use Buddhist meditation and practical teachings to learn to let go of our busy thoughts and to experience the lightness and joy of mind that comes through the practice of mindfulness and living in the moment. This course is suitable for everyone. Each class is self contained so you can drop in to individual classes.
