Meditation for Mental Well-Being & Self-Care

With Kadam John McBretney, Resident Teacher of Heruka KMC

Mondays 7.30 - 8.45pm

At Heruka Kadampa Meditation Centre

Weekly classes on Mondays

Mental health and well-being are important for everyone and it’s important to know what you need to do to look after your mental well-being.

Learning how to prevent unhealthy habits of mind and develop and maintain deeper levels of inner peace, relaxation and happiness are essential to well-being. They can be simply practiced on your own at home and in daily life.

Buddhist meditation not only brings about these benefits, it also enables you to understand and train your mind to remain happy and peaceful regardless of your circumstances.

In these classes our Resident Teacher, Kadam John McBretney who has more than 25 years' experience in teaching meditation, will explain clearly how to gain control of your mind, and he will guide meditations so you can improve your mental stability and well-being. You will discover how you can:

  • Protect your mind from stress, anxiety and mental pain
  • Develop a self-care practice for your mind
  • Learn meditation techniques to enhance your sense of well-being

The classes are in-person and suitable for all levels. Everybody welcome.

Modern Buddhism - The Path of Compassion and Wisdom

With Ralph Sueppel

Tuesdays 7.30 - 8.45pm

At Heruka Kadampa Meditation Centre

Weekly classes on Tuesdays

Although we want to be happy all the time we do not know how to do this, and we are always destroying our own happiness by developing anger, negative views and negative intentions. Happiness and suffering are states of mind and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, we must learn how to control our mind. Through meditation we can gain profound realizations through which we can solve our daily problems of delusions and accomplish the real meaning of human life.

These in-person classes are suitable for all levels.
Everybody welcome.

How does Kadampa meditation help?

Modern life is challenging and if we lack the inner resources to control our mind, we will inevitably find life stressful and difficult to manage, giving rise to feelings of anxiety, irritation and even loneliness and depression. This can make us feel unhappy and helpless, and it can also have an impact on our relationships as we become less able to cope constructively with disagreements and differences in our views and wishes.

Kadampa meditation gives us the solution. The meditations taught, and the teachings which help us to understand what to meditate on, give us techniques to understand where our unhappiness and problems are coming from and how to change them. Not only this, but over time, we will learn to transform difficult situations into opportunities for growth and development, so that instead of feeling powerless when faced with a difficult situation, we will come to welcome difficulties into our life as they provide the actual means with which to bring about positive change and spiritual development. In this way, peace and happiness will become our daily experience, and we will approach life with a new confidence and sense of purpose.

"If our mind is pure and peaceful we will be happy, regardless of our external circumstances, but if it is impure and unpeaceful we will never be happy, no matter how hard we try to change the external conditions."

How to Transform Your Life by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.


FAQs about meditation classes

Everyone is welcome

"Happiness is a part of the mind that experiences inner peace, or peace of mind, so the real source of happiness must lie within the mind, not in external conditions."
