October 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Cost: $30 ($15 for supporting members)
Free Your Mind
A Life Beyond Anxiety, Worries & Stress

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.

In this half-day course, we will look at how meditation can eliminate stress and help us to be more relaxed, peaceful and positive in our daily life. We will train in powerful stress-busting techniques derived from ancient Buddhist wisdom, and learn to face life’s adversities with a happy, peaceful heart.

Everyone is welcome!
