letting go of worries : half-day workshop : august 21 : palmerston north

Is it possible to let go of worries? Sometimes it doesn’t feel that way.

We find ourselves in situations we can’t seem to control, or faced with problems we can’t seem to solve. But it can be really hard to let go. We can be a bit like a dog with a bone: holding on tight to whatever it is that is bothering us; and trapped in a cycle of anxiety and worry. Sometimes the idea that we should just let something go doesn’t seem very helpful. So we need to take action!

During this workshop we can learn methods to develop the inner resources and strength to transform these thoughts and feelings into positive minds.

Rather than dwelling on what may happen to us in the future we can discover how to replace doubts and worry with minds of love and compassion. Rather than feeling overwhelmed or disempowered we can develop inner confidence based on a realistic view of ourselves, others and the world around us.

Everyone is welcome.
