15 & 22 August | with Richard Hoyle

Is it possible in such an insecure world to be free of anxiety? Yes it is. The debilitating stress that often sweeps us up and destroys our enjoyment of life can be faced with calmness and wisdom. Navigating skilfully through life’s challenges is how we learn to live fearlessly. Through Buddhist meditation we can uncover the underlying causes of anxiety and learn how to let them go. Through training our mind we will be able to approach seemingly fear-inducing situations with a sense of peace and even enjoyment. This form of freedom gives our lives great meaning.

Fear and anxiety are two of the biggest internal struggles faced by modern people. This short course will explore how we can gain freedom from these negative emotions through meditation and practical application of Buddha’s timeless advice.

Everybody is welcome, no previous experience necessary.
