Meditate, Eat and Be Happy

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful.

If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.

In this class, we will learn how to meditate, the benefits of meditation, and various meditations that will help to calm the mind, reduce stress, and give rise to an experience of inner peace and wellbeing.
