Dealing with Stress and Anxiety
Simple Steps to a More Positive You
Wednesday 7.30 - 8.30pm
So much of the stress and tension we normally experience comes from our mind, and many of the problems we experience, including ill health are caused or aggravated by this stress.
Using meditation techniques and positive ways of thinking taken from Buddha’s teachings, we can learn to stop worrying and start living.
Each class consists of a simple guided breathing meditation to calm and still the mind, a short talk and a second guided meditation based on the topic of the talk.
There will be a chance to ask questions if you wish, and practical advice for integrating what we have learnt into our daily life.
You are welcome to stay afterwards for a chat over complimentary hot drink and biscuits!
The class is suitable for beginners and experienced meditators alike.
This class is lead by the Resident Teacher, Kelsang Rak-ma
