Calming the Anxious Mind

Gen Kelsang Rabten is our most senior teacher in Australia and one of the New Kadampa Tradition’s most well-loved and respected teachers.

In this inspiring talk, he will explain how we can feel confident to turn inwards, and gain the insight to transform our restless, worrying and uncomfortable mind.

With his good humour and wisdom, he will share practical strategies from Buddhism that everyone can use in their daily life to feel less anxious and make their mind balanced, clear and strong.

Everyone is welcome to attend this Public Talk. No prior experience is needed, and it is suitable for people of all ages over 14 years.

If you enjoy our classes, this event is the perfect occasion to bring friends and family.
