Mindfulness for Busy People
Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley
Saturday 6 October, 10am – 1pm
Even if your life is very busy with little free time, you can learn how to let go of stress, distractions, and unwanted thoughts. Mindfulness is a powerful way to develop and maintain a calm and stable mind in busy life. This workshop will focus on developing the mental skills to gain control of your thoughts.
When we learn how to practice mindfulness in daily life, we will have a special ability to remain inwardly calm and free from stress even in the midst of our busy, modern world. Understanding and practicing mindfulness is essential if we want to transform our normally busy minds into the causes of peace and happiness. We will emphasize easy and practical methods for understanding mindfulness and integrating the practice into everyday life.
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 Helen Richardson, a student of the Teacher Training Programme at Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley.
