Actions for happiness:

8 steps to a happy life.

Term dates – Tues Sept  7th 

Tuesday 12 noon with Steve Givnan

We all know that nothing compares to the feeling of genuine love.
It takes us out of the ordinary and allows us to become the best version of ourself.
But for most of us, genuine feelings of unconditional love are rare and fleeting.

Rather than just wait in hope for love to come and takes us by surprise, what if we were able to consciously nurture this powerful mind so it became a regular part of our life?

What if we could grow our minds of love and compassion to encompass more and more people? How would this change our world? How would it change us?

Geshe Kelsangs book The New Eight Steps to Happiness explains a beautiful and extensive meditation on love and compassion that comprises one of Buddhism’s best loved and most enduring teachings.

In this series of classes, we are invited to go on a journey, to discover how it is possible let go of all our self sabotaging minds and replace them with powerful minds of love and compassion, minds that bring us limitless joy and confidence.

For centuries these instructions have brought lasting peace and serenity to countless people.
The journey isn’t long. It’s only 8 steps…to happiness!

Everyone is welcome to these classes no prior experience of meditation is necessary. You can join the classes at any point in the term.
