Overcoming Stress and Anxiety
Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley
Saturday 3 November, 10am – 1pm
Worry, anxiety and stress are seemingly a part of our modern, busy, fast paced lives. By learning to identify the actual causes of stressed 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.
We tend to think that situations or people in our life are the causes of our stress or unhappiness, so we then spend a lot of time mentally trying to figure out how to fix those situations or people, which often just makes our mind busier. 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 our self, people around us and the world in general.
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 taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin, a Buddhist monk with over 18 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism. Paljin is the Resident Teacher of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley.
