Anti-Stress Retreat

We all know that stressing out about things just makes them worse. And yet we also feel like we have no choice but to stress and worry about the crises and pressures we are facing at the moment. Actually, our stress does not come from the external situation, but rather from our response to it. Stress comes from our mind.

The good news is there are ancient methods for ‘dropping out’ of a stressed mind and into a clear and peaceful one that have been tried and tested over thousands of years, and there are ways we can learn to respond to problems, so that we remain more centered, flexible and effective.

In this half-day retreat we will learn how to do both. Kadam Morten will guide us in a surprisingly simple meditation that can bring about a peaceful, clear mind swiftly. Then, using Buddha’s profound insights into the mind, he will uncover where our stressful response comes from, and show how in letting go of that mistaken perception we can respond skillfully and peacefully. Right about now, this advice seems more pertinent than ever!

This retreat is in follow-up to the half-day course, How Not to Stress, offered last Saturday. Everyone is welcome to attend including those who weren’t able to attend the course.
