Living our lives with full and loving awareness can seem impossible with all of the complications of modern life. Most people have to juggle work, family, social life, technology as well as all the craziness that’s going on in the world. This can leave us feeling depleted, distracted and asking ourselves ‘is this it?’.

The mind is the one thing which absolutely determines whether the weekend trip to Paris or the new IT job is rewarding. How can we make the most of life when we are distracted by trivialities, rehearsing arguments in our head, or getting irate about how long it takes to make an online booking. Of course we don’t have to attend to the mind, we can just carry on doing things how we’ve always done them. But if we really want an increasingly connected and loving relationship with ourselves, with all the people in our lives and to feel our lives are really going somewhere, we need to attend to the mind.

Join us for this 8-week course, as week-by-week we go on a journey of awareness together, from remembering where you put the keys to transcendental insight into the nature of reality. With practical instruction and exercises, what will emerge is a new way of engaging with all areas of our lives, one that is not just calmer or less stressed, but deeply connected to a sense of potential and meaning.
