Interest in Mindfulness and Meditation is growing steadily worldwide, especially from people seeking answers in this current global age of clashing ideologies, fanatical strife and senseless violence and warfare.
Why is this interest growing so quickly?
Perhaps it is because more and more people now realize that being truly mindful involves compassion, tolerance and moderation and provides a clear path for spiritual and personal development. Further, it has no room for blind faith or unthinking worship.
Our approach encourages questions and Investigations into the nature of spirituality, mindfulness and wholesome living, requiring us to take full responsibility for all of our actions.
Mindfulness can be learned, understood and experienced, with immediate results.
Thich Nhat Hanh says that you can be a Christian and still follow the teachings on Mindfulness taught by Buddha over 2500 years ago.
Lastly, Buddhist teaching on Mindfulness, Concentration and living a life having learned to live with our human weaknesses, is very much in harmony with modern science.
Meditation alone does not bring lasting happiness.
We seek to foster a deeper, spiritual life as well.
