Training in Happiness

Whilst we all want to be happy, we may not be aware that happiness is actually something we can all train in. Happiness is a state of mind, and like any state of mind it can be cultivated, increased and strengthened through training.

In this series of talks and guided meditations – with Kadam Adam – we will explore how it all starts with discovering that whilst good external conditions are necessary to support a healthy and happy life, they are not the main ingredient to a consistent experience of happiness in everyday life. That main ingredient that Buddha discovered is inner peace, and meditation is a training in developing and maintaining a deep experience of inner peace and happiness throughout our days and life.

Each week in this series, we will learn practical meditation techniques and ways of relating to ourselves (and our potential for positive change), others and the world around us, that naturally increases our inner peace, happiness and positive energy in everyday life.
