Learn meditations that empower you to take back control of your mind and overcome procrastination.
In this series, we will learn how to set up a daily meditation practice for a happy life and stable self-esteem, how to energize and uplift the mind, and find direction in our life.
Inner peace and contentment are elusive. We restlessly seek something or someone to bring us the happiness we long to experience.
In this series we will use Buddha’s timeless wisdom, to guide us towards unravelling the mechanisms in our mind that cause us to experience painful feelings of dissatisfaction and craving. We will explore clear and compelling methods to develop stable and enduring peace of mind.
