We all know that stressing out just makes things worse. And yet we also feel like we have no choice but to stress and worry about the crises and pressures we face in our lives.

According to Buddha, stress does not come from external situations but rather from our response to them. In other words, it comes from our mind. By learning how to “drop out” of a stressed mind and into a clear and peaceful one we can learn to respond to problems differently, in a more centered, flexible and effective way.

In this half-day course, Kelly 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, she will uncover where our stressful response comes from, and show how we can gain new perspectives on our difficulties and respond skillfully and peacefully.
