Dealing with Depression – half day course
Quaker Meeting House, 22 School Lane, L1 3BT
Depression is a very common problem nowadays. It can affect almost anyone, at any time. When we’re suffering from depression we can feel deeply unhappy about our life, isolated and alone; we can feel powerless to escape from the painful feelings in our mind.
On this course, we will explore practical methods to deal with depression, using insights from Buddhist teachings to understand its causes and to learn how to overcome it by developing and maintaining inner peace and mental strength. In this way we can find a happy and meaningful life.
The teacher of this course is Gen Kelsang Jigme, our Resident Teacher. Ordained in 1997 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Gen Jigme has studied, practised and taught Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang’s guidance for many years.
