Classes begin with a simple guided breathing meditation followed by a teaching and a second guided meditation based on the topic.
MEDITATION classes for everyone. ENJOY calming guided meditations and learn reliable methods to make your mind clear and positive and thereby transform your life.
‘Every living being has the same basic wish – to be happy and avoid suffering. Even newborn babies, animals and insects have this wish. It has been our main wish since beginningless time and it is with us all the time, even during our sleep. We spend our whole life working hard to fulfil this wish.
Since this world evolved, human beings have spent almost all their time and energy improving external conditions in their search for happiness and a solution to their problems. What has been the result? Instead of their wishes being fulfilled, human suffering and problems have continued to increase while the experience of happiness and peace is decreasing. This clearly shows that until now we have not found a correct method for reducing our problems and increasing happiness.
The actual correct method for doing this is changing our attitude from negative to positive. We must understand this through our own experience’.
