Living Lightly

This series will explore how to recognise and let go of negative, heavy states of mind that weigh us down and obstruct our happiness. Instead we will learn how to develop and maintain lighter, more positive states of mind that bring us tremendous energy and joy in daily life.

Through guided meditation and teachings we can explore the very real choices we have to free ourselves from worry, stress, anger and jealousy and instead develop our patience, acceptance, joy and inner peace. 

We will learn how to shine the light of spiritual wisdom onto our problems and difficulties. In this way we can experience an inner freedom and bring a new clarity and lightness to our life that will bring happiness and benefit to both ourself and others.

Everybody welcome!
