Create Your Own Inner Peace 29 January - 23 March (not inc w/k 19-23 Feb) 

1. Why Meditation? Meditation and mindfulness are important for our mental peace and well- being. People are looking for simple solutions to the problems of modern daily life such as anxiety, stress and dissatisfaction. All of these problems are rooted in our mind and our mental reactions to the things that happen to us. Gain a deeper understanding of the causes of mental health and your potential for inner peace and real happiness.

2. What is Meditation? Meditation is simple and can be practised by everyone in normal daily life. Everyone will benefit from as little as 10 minutes meditation each day. Learn the basics of daily meditation and mindfulness practice so that you can get started straight away.

3. The preparations. As with any activity we need to prepare well. These preliminaries include simple breathing and body relaxation exercises we can all do while in the comfort of a chair. The relaxation they produce alone will help us deal with the stresses and business of daily life.

4. What is Mindfulness? Perhaps the most important quality we need to develop is mindfulness because this is the power to hold an object in our mind without forgetting. Learn how we use this mental factor in meditation.

5. The Obstacles. Identify the main obstacles to meditation and mindfulness so that we can learn to overcome them. These include little aspiration and a distracted mind. Through effort

we can reduce and eventually illuminate these obstacles laying the foundation for faultless meditation.

6. The Objects of Meditation. There are many objects we can meditate on. We can choose those that are most relevant to our own circumstances so that our meditation functions to solve our particular daily problems. Receive an overview of the objects available.

7. Mindful Living. The power of meditation depends upon how we integrate our practice into daily life. Using the power of mindfulness we can really transform our life and bring benefit to others too.
