Overcoming Stress & Anxiety
Saturday, 30 November 10:00am-1:00pm
Kadampa Meditation Centre Auckland2 Stokes Rd, Mt Eden, Auckland, 1024
Half Day workshop
With Buddhist teacher Lizzie Kelly
The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort and so we will experience true happiness and relaxation. But if our mind is stressed and anxious we will find it very difficult to be happy and relaxed even if we are living in the very best conditions.
So much of the stress and anxiety we normally experience comes from our mind, and many of the problems we experience, including ill health, are caused or aggravated by stress and anxiety.
If we understand the causes of an unpeaceful mind and control our mind in meditation, gradually our stress and anxiety will reduce and we shall experience a purer form of happiness. We will experience a calm, spacious feeling in the mind, and many of our usual problems will fall away.
Difficult situations will become easier to deal with, we will naturally feel warm and well disposed towards other people, and our relationships with others will gradually improve.
