stop worrying, start living : half-day workshop : may 15, 10am – 1pm : palmerston north

It seems to be fashionable to train our bodies and maintain our physical appearance.
But what about training our mind to be happy?!

We live in uncertain times, both globally and personally, and it is easy to feel troubled both by what we see in the world around us, as well as the difficulties we face in our daily lives.

Although change and uncertainty can be unsettling, they can become transformative.

We need to learn to recognise the difference between what we can and cannot control. When we learn to control our own minds instead of focusing on external things, we feel empowered, and through training our mind we can transform difficult situations – so they really can become the impetus for positive change.

In this half-day workshop we will learn how to gently train our mind, using time-tested meditation techniques.

Everyone is welcome.

Our teacher for this workshop is Kelsang Phunwang. Phunwang has studied at the Amitabha Centre for many years and ordained in 2014. He is sincere and kind, and has a deep understanding of dharma which he puts into practice in all aspects of his life.
