Meditation Course: Dissolve Mental Stress
If we want to reduce or banish our stress altogether, we need to learn how to meditate, how to control our mind.
We all know that stressing out just makes things worse. And yet we also feel like we have no choice but to stress and worry about the crises and pressures we face in our lives.
According to Buddha, stress does not come from external situations but rather from our response to them. In other words, it comes from our mind. By learning how to switch off a stressed mind and learn ways to a clear and peaceful one, we can then respond to problems differently, in a more centered, flexible and effective way.
Gen Mila will explain this profound statement “I can’t control all external events but if I simply control my mind, what need is there to control other things?”
Each class will include 2 meditations, a teaching and time for Questions & Answers with some discussion.
Essential practical advice for everyone.
Everyone is welcome !
