Half Day Course
Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre
Saturday 22 Feb, 10am – 1pm
Fear and anxiety are common reactions to situations we dislike. By gaining control over negative and unhelpful states of mind we can be free from these reactions and become truly liberated from all our fears.
We have so many fears these days: for ourselves, our families, our friends, and our world. Sometimes we are well aware of these fears and sometimes they are hidden beneath the surface, giving rise to anxiety and insecurity. Instead of hiding from fear, burying it or pretending it’s not there, we need to explore what we are dealing with. Many of our present fears are rooted in what Buddha identified as “delusions” – distorted, wrong, and harmful ways of looking at ourselves and the world around us.
In this workshop we will practice meditations which help us to understand, reduce and eventually eliminate the delusions which are the actual source of all our fears.
Our workshops are a perfect way to both relax and develop internally. They are ideal for those who are new to meditation and those who would like to improve.
You may also be interested in the afternoon workshop, Introduction to Tantra. There is a discounted price for people attending both events. The cost of the half day course is £12.50 (GP Centre Card £5) or combine it with our afternoon workshop, Introduction to Tantra, for £18.
This course will be taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin the Resident Teacher of Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre and of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley. He is a Buddhist monk with over 20 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
