Half Day course Buddhism and Depression Course (Healing the Mind)
June 24 @ 10:00 am
Buddhism and Depression – healing the mind
Depression is a very common problem which can affect any of us at any time. When we’re suffering from depression we can feel deeply unhappy about our life, isolated and alone; we can feel powerless to escape from the painful feelings in our mind.
On this half day course, we will explore practical methods to deal with depression, using insights from Buddhist teachings to understand its causes and to learn how to overcome it by developing and maintaining inner peace and mental strength. In this way we can find a happy and meaningful life.
