Mindfulness with the Emotions course

A mindfulness course to help you transform negative emotions


This course has been developed by Gelong Thubten (a Director of Samye Foundation Wales) who has been a monk since 1993. He has received teachings from many Buddhist masters of meditation from Samye Ling Monastery in Scotland. He is also the author of the book ‘A Monk’s Guide to Happiness’ which has featured in the Sunday Times best sellers list. He collaborated with Ruby Wax on the book and tour ‘Ruby Wax with a neuroscientist and a monk – How to Be Human’.


Each week of the course will give you the opportunity to work with motivation as well as negative emotions such as jealousy, anger and pride. By applying meditation exercises that work with each of the negative emotions we can help to transform them and thereby help promote a sense of well-being and calm.


The course is most suitable for those with some experience of mindfulness. Our Mindfulness with the Emotions workshop offers useful preparation for this course. We look forward to welcoming you to the centre.


The course takes place in our dedicated mindfulness centre in Cardiff. It is facilitated by tutor Lorraine Harris who is an experienced tutor of mindfulness. Lorraine is a member of the UK Mindfulness Teachers Network as well as a Lead Tutor for the Mindfulness Association. She has also trained with Rob Nairn.
