Transformation in difficult times - with Gelong Thubten 18th January (Time: 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm)

Saturday 18th January 2pm – 4.30

***Note to all attendees – this will be a very busy event! We will start at 2pm sharp so please arrive in plenty of time so we can seat everyone comfortably in advance of 2pm, late comers will be accomodated in the overflow space. We also encourage attendees to use public transport, bikes or to arrive on foot where possible, for those who do need to drive, there is only limited parking on site, with on-street parking available for our very kind neighbours, so please park responsibly (and avoid the clampers!) in nearby IMMA which is only a 5-10 minute walk***

An afternoon of talks and meditation instruction aimed at transforming our response to challenges and difficuties. In particular, the modern pace of life can leave us feeling pressurised and stressed. Thubten will explain stress from the Buddhist understanding as well as from the point of view of neuroscience, and he will offer methods for creating greater resilience.

As life becomes increasingly busy, people can find it hard to maintain a daily practice, and they perhaps feel their minds are ‘too busy’ for meditation. Thubten will offer tips for creating sustainable diligence in a stressful world.

There will be a discourse on the effects of technology, social media and the explosion of fast-moving news and advertising, and how these elements have increased our levels of anxiety and insecurity. We will then look at how daily meditation can provide protection, helping keep our minds more independent and less busy.
