Meditation is more than a wellbeing tool. It is a practice that can totally transform your life.

Our everyday experiences are coloured by our emotional states. It can easily feel like we have no control over them. Through the practice of mindfulness, however, we can learn to not only understand our emotional patterns, but also to challenge and grow beyond them.

We can let go of constant fire-fighting and step into a mode of being that is creative, positive and loving.

Course overview

In this 8-week course, designed by psychiatrist and long-term Buddhist practitioner Dr Paramabandhu Groves, you’ll learn to develop the emotional positivity, resilence and confidence you need to transform your life.

Practising mindfulness shows us that we relate to emotions with awareness, they can empower us to act from our deepest values. Feeling inadequate, lost or overwhelmed happen when we turn away from our values, instead of living them out.

On this course, you’ll learn practical ways to let go of what limits our emotional flourishing. You’ll discover that kindness and positivity are not just “nice to have,” but can offer a radical new way of living.

Quote from one of the teachers

“We're always being told about the positive health benefits of meditation. But meditation is really for something quite specific in Buddhism. It's for changing the deep structure of your body and mind. What meditation does, particularly through practices like the cultivation of loving kindness and mindfulness, is that you learn to go beyond your likes and dislikes. And the mind can develop a broader, more open awareness that really starts to see the whole picture. And what that whole picture looks like is quite surprising - it’s much bigger and more beautiful than you might imagine!” (Viryadeva)

Quote from a practitioner

“Learning about loving kindness meditations has really helped me to appreciate other people, to strengthen the friendships in my life, and to improve all of my relationships..” (Jack)
