About the Day Course
Worry and stress are an increasingly common problem for people in the modern world. These states of mind prevent us from experiencing peace and enjoying a full life.
Problems, worry, anxiety and unhappiness are no more than negative thinking; they are feelings and do not exist outside the mind. On this meditation day course we will learn the causes of these crippling states of mind and how to overcome them through positive ways of thinking.
