Do you ever feel that you are too busy to meditate? Learn practical advice on how to integrate meditation into your busy modern life and become more focused and positive. Suitable for everyone.

Overcoming Stress and Anxiety week of 1 March to week of 22 March 4 weeks

Many people suffer from anxiety and stress at some time or other. Sometimes it is due to stressful work, sometimes due to problems at home, and sometimes due to difficult relationships.

On this course, learn how anxiety and stress, as well as other conditions such as tension, nervousness, worry and depression have their roots in our state of mind and show how we can reduce and eventually overcome these conditions by working on our mind with a combination of meditation and positive thinking.

Clarity: stillness within – Week of 29 March to week of 26 April 5 weeks

We can completely change our experience of life by learning how our mind works. Dive into the silence and clarity of your own mind and experience the tranquillity of the mind’s pure nature.
