Finding Your Happy: An introduction to the 16 Guidelines in London (Level 1)

  • Jamyang Buddhist Centre 43 Renfrew Road, (c/o Jamyang Buddhist Centre) Lambeth- London United Kingdom (map)

How would it feel to wake up every day with an inner knowing that whatever the day threw your way, your happiness was unshakeable?

What would you be doing with your life if you had broken through your self-limiting beliefs and knew how to stop yourself falling back into those patterns?

How different would your life be if you understood how to help all your relationships thrive and grow?

This two-day workshop will give you practical tools to help you live a life like that: a life where you better understand yourself and get happier as a result.

Finding Your Happy with 16 Guidelines

But it’s more than that; because happier people make a happier world.

This is a workshop for anyone who knows their life could be better than it is; and not by getting the newest phone, or more money, or a bigger house. If you’re feeling like there’s something missing, if you know that there’s more to life, and if you want practical tools to discover all of this and more, you need just 16 Guidelines.

Through the course you will…

  • Explore the role and power of your mind in creating happiness

  • Experience a practical framework for positive daily living

  • Gain an insight into how to fulfil your potential and create a meaningful life

How does it work?

The idea is simple: to change the way we experience the world, we transform the way we think, act, and relate to others to find meaning.

Equipped with better knowledge of ourselves we can break through our limiting beliefs, transform our relationships, make better decisions, and find peace of mind even on the most difficult of days.

By thinking about universal principles which we encounter every day (reflected in the 16 Guidelines), noticing our patterns of thinking, speaking and acting, and understanding how our minds work through mindfulness and self-enquiry, we can find lasting happiness.

Neuroscientists have shown that each of us has the potential to continue developing our minds, regardless of our age and life experiences. During the course you’ll explore universal qualities like compassion, mindfulness, wisdom, and kindness. You’ll find practical ways to live more happily, which will benefit you and the people around you.

What are the 16 Guidelines?

Finding Your Happy with 16 Guidelines

The 16 Guidelines which form the basis of the workshop are a contemporary presentation of ancient wisdom. They appear consistently in the philosophical, spiritual and religious traditions of the world, even if they’re not always put into practice. Learning to apply them to everyday situations can bring about real and lasting personal transformation and resilience.

The guidelines are rooted in the belief that positive change in society starts with the individual. If we can develop our own capacity to be kind and wise, it follows that we will gradually bring happiness and meaning into our life and the lives of others.

Who is the course for?

This retreat is suitable for people of all faiths and cultural traditions.

It is perfect for those new to the 16 Guidelines as well as anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of them, or for those intending to become accredited 16G trainers.
