Train Your Mind with Mindfulness and Meditation

A trained mind is a happy mind. We are not fixed in our thinking. We are responsible for what is happening inwardly, and can therefore change it for the better. This gives us encouragement, confidence, and inner strength.

Throughout this series we will look at how to practice watching our mind, how to really understand our thoughts, and how to make lasting positive change. In particular, we will see how mindfulness is key to a happy life and how to make it a consistent habit. 

Feel free to drop in to any class, or join the series as a whole. Everyone welcome!
