Letting Go of Stress and Anxiety
Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley
Saturday 14 March, 10am – 1pm
Worry, stress and anxiety are part of modern, fast paced life. By identifying their causes we can learn to reduce and abandon them. In this workshop explore special meditations and ways of thinking to heal your mind and achieve lasting happiness.
We tend to think that situations or people in our life are the causes of our stress or unhappiness, so spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to fix those situations or people. This often just makes our mind busier and increases our lack of peace. Buddha taught that in reality our unhappiness comes from our unpeaceful minds. By learning to overcome our unrealistic expectations of others and our exaggerated views of self, we can find lasting happiness and real peace of mind.
Anyone can attend this meditation event; it is suitable for complete beginners and those with experience. Everyone is welcome.
The cost of the workshop is £12.50 (GP Centre Card £5).
Refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafe during the workshop. Why not also stay for lunch afterwards?
This course will be are taught by Kelsang Drama, a student of the Foundation Programme at Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley.
