Freedom from Stress & Worry

Saturday 6th November | 10am – 1.15pm


We often feel that our unhappy minds of stress and worry are caused by external situations and unpleasant people, which means that we are continually trying to change and manipulate external circumstances. Shantideva, a Buddhist master, said “Where is there enough leather to cover the whole world? But if we had enough leather to cover our feet, it would be the same as covering the whole world”. It is impossible to change and avoid difficult situations, but if we learnt how to avoid unhappy difficult minds, we would have real inner protection from upset and unhappiness. On this course we will learn practical methods to protect our mind from stress, worry and other negative states, in this way we will come to experience true freedom from within.
