Overcoming Stress and Anxiety
@ Burnley KBC
Saturday 9 March, 10am – 1pm
Explore effective meditations and positive approaches to overcome stress and anxiety. Learn simple techniques that will allow you to reduce and abandon these unpeaceful minds and help you to be more relaxed, peaceful and positive in our daily life.
Anxiety and stress 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 and unhappiness. Consequently, we waste our time and deplete our mental energy by trying to figure out how to ‘fix’ those situations or people. This usually creates even more mental busyness and stress.
Buddha taught that all our worries, anxiety and stress comes from within our own mind. More specifically, they come from our unrealistic expectations and our exaggerated views of ourself, the people around us and the world in general. By learning to identify the actual causes of our unpleasant feelings and emotions, we can begin to understand how to free our mind from them and learn to face life’s adversities with a happy, peaceful heart.
This workshop will include guided meditations, which will help you to develop a peaceful and positive mind so that your year is fulfilling and meaningful. This course is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced meditators.
Refreshments are available in our World Peace Café during the course.
The cost of the Meditation Workshop is £15 (Monthly Members £5, FP Monthly Members £0).
