Our relationships with others, whether a couple, within a family, or amongst friends and colleagues can have a huge impact on our overall emotional wellbeing. Through meditation we can develop special ways of thinking that make relationships rewarding and harmonious, and we can break out of mental habit patterns that can sabotage them.

On this course learn and practise simple meditations to make our relationships work – just in time for the festive season.

Patrick Manning started meditation & Buddhism classes in 2009, and has a deep appreciation for Buddha’s teachings. He is a dedicated student on our Foundation Program and teaches with sincerity and humility.
