Meditation workshop this weekend

A live stream mediation workshop will take place this weekend.

The team behind the workshop said worry is a common response to things we have little or no control over.

They said: “However, we all understand that no amount of worry or stress can solve the actual problem. In fact, it only makes things worse. By consuming our mental energy and filling our time with endless troubling thoughts, we can find ourselves exhausted and overwhelmed - even before anything happens!

“Ironically, we feel more and more powerless to solve our problems because our mind is getting more and more out of control. Then, when we feel powerless, and that things have slipped out of our control, we get even more anxious and frustrated — we cannot see clearly what to do.”

They added: “How can we change this? Meditation and meditation techniques can help us to learn new responses to life’s challenges. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind, they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. We can learn to have choices in how we respond, and we can learn many methods to recognize, reduce and eliminate worry and deeply enjoy our life.”

The workshop will be run by Buddhist nun Kelsang Drolma on 27 November from 10am-1.30pm. See
