It is very important to be happy. Being happy is our most basic wish and if we ourself are not happy, how can we make others happy? Therefore being happy is very important.
So how can we consciously and consistently improve our happiness on a daily basis? One method, taught by Buddha, is called “Rejoicing” – a simple practice that maintains and increases our happiness. Learning about this practice will be the main focus of this and other events in September.
“Rejoicing” is an extensive practice, where we learn to delight again and again (“re-joy”) in the good qualities, good actions, happiness and successes of others and ourself. “Rejoicing” defeats any tendencies towards jealousy and discouragement, while turning our mind in a positive direction and increasing our happiness.
Combining meditation with “Rejoicing” is a guaranteed approach to improving our daily happiness. Anyone can learn these methods which are simple, logical and effective. We can even practice “Rejoicing” while lying down or relaxing!
About the classes
We will explore this topic, in this series of four classes during September 2022. Each class can be attended individually or as part or the series and consists of two meditations, a teaching, some discussion and an opportunity to ask questions.
Most people sit on chairs, though some meditation cushions are available. No previous experience is needed and you can “drop-in” to any class on Mondays. Tea is served from 17.45 and everyone is welcome 🙂
