Ganden Kadampa Buddhist Centre

Meditation Workshop

special event with gen rabten - overcoming anxiety

Friday 3 May 7-8.30pm



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 or unhappiness, so we then spend a lot of time mentally trying to figure out how to fix those situations or people, which often just makes our mind busier.

Buddha taught that all our unhappiness, including anxiety, comes from our mind. More specifically it comes from our unrealistic expectations and our exaggerated views of ourself, people around us and the world in general.

By learning to identify the actual causes of worry and unhappy thoughts, we can begin to understand how to become free from them.

Join us for this inspiring Friday Night Lecture as Gen Rabten explains special ways of thinking and meditations that heal the mind of the source of these problems. Everyone is welcome.

TIME: 7-8.30pm

COST: $25
