WHY MEDITATE?

Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external situations.  When our mind is peaceful we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness.

“If we want to experience true, lasting happiness, we need to learn the secret of inner peace by meditating.”  Ven Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

THE BENEFITS

Stress Reduction

Meditation will allow you to relax, refresh and renew your mind, providing you with effective tools for dealing with stress, worry and anxiety.

Inner Calm

If we practice meditation we will experience a calm, spacious feeling in the mind.  Daily challenges will be easier to deal with and many of our usual problems will fall away.

Problem Solving Solutions

Meditation helps us to gain clarity and perspective so we develop a positive outlook on life, gain authentic self-confidence and enjoy better relationships with others.
