Overcoming Stress and Anxiety
Eccleshill Library, Bradford
Saturday 24 November, 9.30am – 12.30pm
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.
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 £15 (GP Centre Card £5).
This course will be taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin the Resident Teacher of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley. He is a Buddhist monk with over 18 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
