These days, many people suffer from anxiety and stress at some time or other. Sometimes it is due to stressful work, sometimes due to problems at home, and sometimes due to difficult relationships.

On this course, we will find out how anxiety and stress, as well as other conditions such as tension, nervousness, worry and depression, have their roots in our state of mind and show how we can reduce and eventually overcome these conditions by working on our mind with a combination of meditation and positive thinking.

Titles:

  1. Inner peace
  2. How to develop and maintain a peaceful mind
  3. Understanding reality
  4. Transforming our mind

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Alana has been practising meditation and studying Buddhism for many years. She brings to her teachings a wealth of practical ways to use Buddhist meditation, sharing her appreciation and experience of the many benefits for our relationships and happiness. Alana studies on the Foundation Programme and will be teaching a regular evening class in the Scottish Borders from June 2017. She is known for her practical, down-to-earth and light-hearted approach.

What does the class entail?

Each class consists of a breathing meditation to settle the mind, a short talk exploring an aspect of training in mindfulness and a second meditation based on the ideas raised. The session concludes with some take away advice that can be practised beyond the sessions allowing the benefits to pervade our life.

Do I have to attend all 4 weeks?

No, each class is self-contained and can be attended on a drop-in basis. However, it is beneficial if possible to attend the entire series of classes.
