Overcoming Fear and Anxiety (IN PERSON)

Anxiety and fear are almost universal experiences of our busy, modern lives. These very common states of mind rob us of our ability to enjoy life, and to experience peace and happiness. Buddha’s timeless teachings offer a simple and yet profound alternative. If we can train our mind to respond to life’s challenges with a peaceful, positive attitude, all our ordinary problems and difficulties fall away, and we discover our true nature which is infinitely calm, happy and stable. In this way we can learn to face life with clarity, inner strength, and profound peace. Everyone welcome!
