About the Weekend

The challenges of daily life often leave us feeling overwhelmed, struggling to focus and less able to be present for our friends and loved ones. It can be hard to find the mental space to switch off, relax and recharge. Even when we find time in our schedules, our busy minds make it hard for us to feel properly rested.

Meditation helps us become aware of our thoughts, empowering us to have greater control creating a sense of space and calm. We become less caught up in things and more able to direct our attention to what matters to us. We become more ready to face challenges with a happier, lighter and more open mind.

Come and join us at the welcoming, supportive, safe and peaceful Land of Joy to develop a happier, kinder and more compassion approach to life.

Topics to be covered

  • Why people meditate

  • Different types of meditation and their uses

  • How meditation can help in everyday life

  • Giving Meditation a try

  • Relaxation
