Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley
Saturday 8 December, 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 fears.
We have so many fears these days: fears for ourselves, fears for our family and friends, and fears for our world. Sometimes these fears are manifest and sometimes they are 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 begin to understand 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 practise 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.
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 Dra-ma a student of the Teacher training Programme at Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley
