    Whilst continuing to stream, we are working to re-open the centre to allow in-person attendance to some classes in the safest way possible.  This will take us time and our startup will be a rolling start.  We will send out messages with any updates as we have them.  Please be sure you are on our emailing list to receive the updates.

  • How to solve our human problems

    These classes offer a rare opportunity to receive commentary to the book How To Solve Our Human Problems and systematically go through all the topics that are included.
    The teachings in this book are particularly powerful for helping us to develop a strong, stable, peaceful mind of patient acceptance and to overcome our tendencies to become stressed, irritated, upset, anxious and angry. Learn how to respond to life’s challenges with a positive and peaceful mind and use them as opportunities for spiritual growth and development. Through understanding and practicing the teachings in this book we can gain true inner strength and confidence.
    This book is fantastic for beginners and long term practitioners alike.

    Over the next 3 series,  we will look at Buddha’s teachings on how to keep a peaceful mind in difficult times. We will be covering the topics in this book until the end of the November.
