Meditation for Beginners (3-week course)
Learn How to Meditate and Find Peace of Mind
During this three-week course aimed at beginners, we will go through the hows and whys of meditation. Combining theory and practice, you will be guided in an array of different meditations, get hints and tips from an experienced meditator, and receive guidance on any issues and blockages you experience.
Sometimes it feels like we have so little control over our mind. Because of this, we experience strong ups and downs and this gets in the way of our happiness and peace of mind. If we want to be truly happy and find some freedom from painful feelings, we must learn how to control our mind.
Meditation is a way of calming the mind, bringing it under control, and developing a positive approach to life. The benefits can be far-reaching; improving our physical and mental health, our relationships, and our way of viewing the world and dealing with difficulties.
