Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times

Handed down in an authentic and unbroken lineage, we teach Buddha’s practical meditation techniques and methods for solving our daily problems. These methods serve to increase our inner peace, happiness and well being. The methods that Buddha taught are as relevant now as they were 2500 years ago. We teach these meditations in a way so that they can be easily combined with our modern busy life.

You don’t need to be a Buddhist to enjoy and benefit from these courses.

The Benefits of Meditation

Inner Peace

When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within. This feeling of contentment and well-being helps us to cope with the busyness and difficulties of daily life.

Stress Reduction

So much of the stress and tension we normally experience comes from our mind. Many of the problems we experience, including ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress. We can reduce this stress through meditation. Just by doing breathing meditation for ten or fifteen minutes each day, we shall be able to reduce this stress.

Problem Solutions

Meditation is a scientific method to transform human nature from bad to good. Everybody needs to be good natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems as well as those of others, and we can make our human life meaningful.

Everybody Welcome!
