The Power of a Positive Mind
Jun 18—Aug 20
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 enjoy 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. By learning to accept painful feelings rather than being panicked by them, we can keep a calm and happy mind in all situations.
