If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind
they would not be problems for us.
- Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
Everyone experiences fear and worry at times, from fear of what others think of us, to fear of failure, or worry about things going wrong at home or at work. These can escalate into anxiety which intensifies our mental pain. Stress and frustration can also be our natural response when life becomes demanding and unpredictable.
Buddha’s wisdom contains an accessible and useful explanation of the underlying causes of these painful feelings, giving us powerful insight into how they function. Combined with meditation, we will learn how to combat negative states of mind and create a sense of mental freedom.
At this practical meditation workshop, learn how to control your mind, rather than allowing it to control you. Buddhist nun Kelsang Dana will explain how we can stay cool, calm and collected in all situations, by learning to accept painful feelings without being panicked by them.
Held over two sessions with refreshments offered in the break for those attending in person, the workshop will include guided meditations, teachings and an opportunity to ask questions. Everyone is welcome to attend, regardless of experience. You will leave this workshop feeling uplifted and empowered to make your mind calm and peaceful.
