Staying Positive in the Midst of Negativity
Otley Court House, Otley
Saturday 12 Oct , 10am – 1pm
When there appears to be so much negativity in the world how can we stay positive and remain peaceful and calm? In this workshop, with the aid of guided meditations, discover how to abandon negative attitudes, to think more positively, wherever you are and whoever you are with.
Buddha’s teachings give us the wisdom to identify and let go of the perspectives that keep us stuck in habitual, negative patterns of thought. By developing the skill to authentically transform our mind through meditation we can change the way we view our self, others and the world around us, and in this way become more optimistic, calm and positive in daily life.
Our 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 £15 (GP Centre Card £5).
This course will be taught by Kelsang Dra-ma, a student of the Teacher Training Programme at Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley.
