FREEDOM FROM ANXIETY: A BUDDHIST APPROACH

November 26, 1pm – 3pm

Fred Heutte Center in Norfolk’s Historic Ghent

Anxiety is more and more common these days, and it can be extremely debilitating. When we’re anxious, it can be hard to think clearly, to make good decisions, or even just to enjoy life.

Many people suffer from feelings of worry and constant anxiety or are simply overwhelmed from time to time by the stress and demands of everyday life.

Buddha’s teachings offer practical solutions to the problem of anxiety: methods of meditation that calm both our body and mind, and wisdom insights that help us to change the habitual fearful thoughts underlying our anxiety. If we learn to use both, we can gradually experience less and less anxiety until eventually we are free from it altogether.

In this workshop, through a talk sharing Buddhist’s teachings and guided meditations , Kelsang Kalden will share how we can begin to establish a peaceful place in our mind , a place of refuge . Gaining experience of this will enable us not only to let go of these painful emotions, but also to respond confidently and creatively to those situations that normally induce anxiety in us.
