OVERCOMING ANXIETY • Gisborne Day Course
Saturday, 23 March • 10am – 3.45pm

ABOUT THE COURSE

Anxiety and stress are an increasingly common problem for people in our busy, modern world. These states of mind prevent us from experiencing peace and enjoying life.

Meditation is an effective way to combat negative states of mind and create a sense of mental freedom. By gaining experience of Buddhist meditation techniques and positive thinking we can learn to control our mind, rather than allowing our mind to control us.

On this day course we will learn how to identify and remove the causes of anxiety and worry, and enjoy a more balanced and happy life.
