Learn simple methods to increase your happiness and solve your problems. No need to book, just turn up, relax and enjoy.


If we have a peaceful mind we will be happy and free from problems. On this half-day course Gen Dema will teach us how we can gain real clarity of mind through very simple meditation techniques. Through this practice we can experience a deep feeling of inner peace which will bring great benefit to ourself and others.
