Anxiety is increasingly common in today’s uncertain world. We can find ourself afraid of turning inwards, looking into our mind, because if we did, we would see that we are living in a state of almost constant discomfort and anxiety. We do not know how to maintain a peaceful and balanced mind, free from worry and fear.

In this inspiring evening talk, internationally renowned guest teacher and Buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Rabten will explain how we can gain the courage to look inward and identify and remove the causes of anxiety and mental pain. Through this we will become fearless, knowing that we can enjoy a happy and fulfilling life no matter what comes our way.


Gen Kelsang Rabten is an internationally renowned teacher and Kadampa Buddhist monk and the NKT-IKBU National Spiritual Director of Kadampa Buddhism for New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia. He has studied and taught modern Kadampa Buddhism for more than 27 years. He is much loved for his insight, humour and practical explanations of meditation and Buddhism.


This talk is based on Buddha’s teachings on the mind, but you do not need to be a Buddhist to attend, or to benefit from them. There is no physical exercise involved (we will sit on chairs). Everyone welcome.
