Breathworks: Mindfulness for Stress (start Sun 3 June 2018)

We all experience stress in daily life and can’t do much about it. Mindfulness will help you discover that you don’t have to live with the unhelpful thoughts and feelings that our minds throw up in reaction to stressful experiences.

On this course you’ll learn practical methods to reduce anxiety, soften tension in the body and stay grounded in a supportive and friendly group setting.

Breathworks has been offering mindfulness courses since 2001, and the effectiveness of our approach has been demonstrated by clinical research.

Introduction to Buddhism - The Wheel of Life (start Wed 6 June)

How we act determines how we live our lives. Yet most of our actions are the repetition of unconscious habits.

The Wheel of Life, a Buddhist Symbol, articulates how we habitually re- become ourselves and why. Our study will introduce fundamental Buddhist ideas.

Through our exploration we will more fully understand ourselves and together learn how we might start to change our unproductive habits to choose happier more fulfilling lives.
