Class Fee: $14 (unwaged $10) | Free for Centre Members

Class Format

Each class begins with a guided breathing meditation to help settle the mind, let go of distractions and cultivate inner peace. The teacher will then give a talk based on the topic of the class series and explain how we can integrate beneficial ways of thinking into our busy daily lives. The class concludes with a second guided meditation so that we are confident to begin practising on our own.

Afterwards, there is an opportunity for questions and discussion and a chance to talk to the teacher.
