Meditation is now scientifically recognized as one of the best methods to reduce stress and to develop inner well-being. In reality, meditation offers much more than that. These series of classes help us not only to deepen our meditation practice but also to nourish it through contemplating profound buddhist teachings, which offer us concrete solutions to our inner problems of anger, stress, impatience, attachment and jealousy. Through improving our understanding of our mind: what in our mind makes us feel happy, sad, tense or confused, we will begin a profound spiritual transformation and become the person we wish to be.
- Guided meditations
- A talk on a practical topic to nourish and deepen our experiences in meditation.

Overcoming a Difficult Year, and Thriving in the New Year
2020 has been a long and difficult year for many of us, and 2021 might be another. Now that 2020 is over, are you ready to not only tackle but thrive in 2021 no matter what?

Falling in Love without Breaking your Heart
Lost relationships, a broken heart, fear of commitment… Rather than hardening our hearts, how can we find our trust in love once again? Is it possible to fall in love without getting hurt? In this series, you will learn how to differentiate between love and attachment and learn to engage in our relationships without fear of being hurt or let down.
We are constantly making decisions and are fully aware of the effects they have on our life. With regards to our happiness, we may feel overwhelmed by them, and wondering if our intuition right. We may have heard of the butterfly effect, whereby a small cause can have large effects – this is a small example that can guide us into an understanding of karma, the law of cause of effect. In this series, you will gain a deeper and practical understanding of karma, practical steps on how not to get bogged down by an overload of decisions to make, and discuss what is intuition and if it is always right.

We are always trying to improve ourselves, but have we ever questioned in depth what the self is, how our definition of self can have great impacts on how we take criticism, respond to it, and ultimately how we grow. In this series, we will look in depth at the immense potential of the self, and looking at it from every angle, we will learn how the different ways of viewing our self impacts our ability to receive criticism constructively, and to ultimately grow and have a happier self.
