OVERCOMING STRESS

Whatever our lifestyle, all of us will at times in our life experience stress. So much of the stress and tension we experience comes from our mind and many of our daily problems, such as relationship difficulties and ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress.

At this workshop, we’ll explore how Buddhist meditation, combined with a change in our perspective on life, can enable us to reduce and finally eliminate stress. By applying this advice in our daily life we can come to enjoy a relaxed and peaceful mind all the time.

TIME: 10am to 1pm

COST: $50pp (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.

HELPING ON THE DAY

You are very welcome to arrive early and help our volunteers set up for the day. We also need help packing and cleaning up afterwards. If you’d like to stay and help, you are most welcome to.

  • If you are feeling unwell on the day or have been in contact with anyone who is unwell, please do not attend on the day – we will arrange a refund for you.
