Stress and anxiety are an increasingly common problem for people in our busy, modern world. We tend to think that situations or people in our life are the causes of our stress or unhappiness. Stress and worry, however, are actually parts of the mind, unpleasant feelings that arise in response to challenging situations. These states of mind prevent us from experiencing peace and enjoying life.
Meditation can help us to develop a more productive set of responses so that we free ourselves of these unhelpful mental habits.
This half-day retreat will help us train in practical methods for overcoming stress – how to maintain a more peaceful and positive mind at work, school, and at home, enhancing our sense of well being and improving all our relationships.
Each session includes guided meditations and a short talk. No experience is needed.
You may sit on a cushion or chair. Enjoy light refreshments during the breaks.
Everyone is welcome!
