7-week course from 4 February – 17 March.
Discover how to break destructive habit patterns and replace them with lasting habits for happiness. Using both Buddhist psychology and western neuroscience techniques, discover practical methods to break bad habit patterns, and encourage activities and attitudes that bring peace and happiness, raise our self-esteem and result in natural confidence.
Practice effective techniques to recognise and deal with destructive habits – be they to do with physical activity and how we treat others, with speech and how we communicate, or with our own thoughts and feelings. Once we discover that we can deconstruct our negative behaviour, we can replace it with beneficial activities that cultivate and enhance peace of mind. Topics include:
- What triggers our negative habits and compulsions
- How the behavioural law of cause and effect (karma) works, and what we can do about it
- Simple techniques to cultivate positive mental habits
This course is ideal for first-time students, and relevant for both Buddhists and non-Buddhists. Although the classes are sequential you can join at any time. The classes include short guided reflections, selected readings, homework activities and plenty of time for questions.
