The centre holds many different sessions in an old house with large garden with beautiful trees. It's a wonderful place of peace and thoughtful reflection with the sound of birdsong accompanying sessions.

I enjoy the classes and the teacher is friendly and easy to talk to. The meditation practices are really helpful and more importantly, work; and so life has improved tremendously. Yes, I will be going again. Cheers.

The purpose of meditation

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful we shall be free from worries and mental discomfort; but if our mind is not peaceful, we shall find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.”

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Buddha's Teachings - advice for balance, harmony and happiness.

Buddha’s Teachings, known as Dharma, are like an inner science that explains, with perfect clarity, the nature and function of the many different aspects of our mind. By applying this understanding we can transform our mind and gain spiritual realisations with which we can solve all our human problems and fulfill all our own and others’ wishes. We can live in our busy, modern world, engaging in normal activities, but seeking happiness from a completely reliable source – from the positive qualities that we have cultivated through meditation within our own mind.
