Letting Go of Worry and Anxiety
Eccleshill Library, Bradford
Saturday 23 June, 9.30am – 12.30pm
Stress, worry and anxiety are parts of the mind, unpleasant feelings that arise in response to challenging situations. Learn 3 simple meditations for stress free living.
We tend to think that situations or people in our life are the causes of our worries and unhappiness, so spend our time trying to figure out how to fix those situations or people. However, this just makes our mind busier, increasing our anxiety.
Buddha taught that all our unhappiness, stress and anxiety comes from our mind. More specifically it comes from our unrealistic expectations and our exaggerated views of ourselves, people around us and the world in general.
By learning to identify the actual causes of worried and anxious thoughts, we can begin to understand how to become free from them. On this course we will explore special ways of thinking and meditations that heal the mind of the source of these problems.
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.
The cost of the workshop is £15 (GP Centre Card £5).
This course will be taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin the Resident Teacher of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley. He is a Buddhist monk with over 18 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
