Gen Kelsang Dornying returns for a Special Talk on Overcoming Anxiety at St George’s Hall
Join British Buddhist monk and teacher Gen Kelsang Dornying at St George’s Hall in the heart of Liverpool for a life-changing public talk on anxiety.
Anxiety and stress are increasingly common problems for people in our busy, modern world. Meditation is an effective way to deal with negative states of mind and create a sense of peace and mental freedom. Through Buddhist meditation and mindfulness techniques we learn to control our mind, rather than allowing our mind to control us. By accepting our painful feelings rather than being panicked by them, we can keep a calm mind in all situations. At this event, open to everyone, discover how to have a happy, anxiety-free life.
Cost: £10. Please book below. Booking essential as this event is expected to be very popular.
Venue: St George’s Hall, Liverpool
Date/Time: July 5 2018 – 7.30-9pm

Modern Buddhism is a special presentation of Buddha’s ancient teachings of compassion and wisdom that are suited to the people of the busy, modern world.
Buddha explained that all our problems and suffering arise from confused and negative states of mind, and that all our happiness and good fortune arise from peaceful and positive states of mind. He taught methods for gradually overcoming our negative minds such as anger, jealousy, and ignorance, and developing our positive minds such as love, compassion, and wisdom. Through this we will come to experience lasting peace and happiness. Find out more.
