FREE for Silver, Gold and Platinum Members

We can’t change the past. However, it is possible to heal the impact it has had on us ever since. Whether it’s a falling out with a friend, a difficult period in our lives, the mental and emotional wear and tear of the last couple of years, or unhelpful habits of mind we feel stuck in, we can heal, move beyond, and become free of all of these.

In this course with Gen Drolkar, we will learn meditations and wisdom insights – that Buddha taught – that reveal how we can all heal and let go of the burden of the past, and discover our innate freedom and potential to change.

We will learn how to live fully in the present moment, from a deeper and more stable experience of peace of mind, genuine happiness and inner resilience. In this way, we will discover how it’s always possible to make a fresh start in our lives, and move forward with a renewed sense of direction, hope and optimism about the future.

Here are some common questions that people ask about our meditation classes. If you have any other questions please contact us and we will be happy to help you in anyway.

Q) What is meditation?

The purpose of meditation is to cultivate positive states of mind, conducive to peace and well-being, and overcome negative habits of mind. Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external conditions. When our mind is peaceful we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness.

Meditation is a technique used by millions of people to develop a calm and peaceful mind. It reduces stress, anxiety, and other negative states of mind and promotes physical and mental well-being. The meditations we guide are non-sectarian, non-judgemental, and universal. They are simple and accepted methods to help people tackle the stress and anxiety associated with the challenges of modern daily life.
