Meditation Workshop

How To Deal With Change and Uncertainty

Sunday 22 August 10am - Mermaid Beach Community Centre



We are all living in uncertain times, both globally and personally. It is easy to feel troubled by everything that we see in the world, and upset by the difficulties that we’re dealing with daily.

Times of change and uncertainty can be unsettling, but they also can become transformative. By learning to accept and embrace change, we free our mind from fear and anxiety and can cultivate wisdom views that help us keep calm and positive amidst the uncertainty of our lives.

TIME: 10am to 1pm

COST: $40pp (includes morning tea)

What To Expect

There are two sessions in each workshop. They consist of an introduction, simple breathing meditation and teaching and conclude with a contemplative meditation on the teaching from that session.

Buddhist meditation involves staying alert and keeping our back straight, so we sit on chairs for the duration of the course. There’s no need to bring anything, although you may wish to bring some water and a jacket. Refreshments are provided in the break session.

Attendees come from all walks of life and there’s no need to have any meditation experience as all meditations are guided.  Everyone is welcome.
