Overcoming Stress and Anxiety
Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley
Saturday 9 Dec, 10am – 1pm
Stress, worry and anxiety are parts of the mind, unpleasant feelings that arise in response to challenging situations. Meditation helps us to develop productive responses so that we can free ourselves from these unhelpful mental habits.
Stress, worry and anxiety are endemic in our busy, fast paced life. 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. By learning to identify the actual causes of stress and unhappy 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.
Anyone can attend this meditation event; it is suitable for complete beginners and those with some experience. Everyone is welcome.
The cost of the workshop is £12 (GP Centre Card £5).
Refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafe during the workshop. Why not also stay for lunch afterwards?
