ABOUT THE COURSE

Learn practical and effective methods to transform sickness and pain into inner treasures of healing wisdom and compassion. This half-day course provides a practical introduction to the practice of meditation. The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful.  If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort and so we will experience true happiness and relaxation.  But if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy and relaxed even if we are living in the very best conditions.
