Ashton Meditation Class

Thursday Evening Drop in Class, Everyone is Welcome

with Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Lhachog

11 Nov – Dealing with Anxiety – Being unable to control situations and how we feel can give arise to a feeling of anxiety. Through meditation and an understanding of Buddha’s teachings we can begin to take control and find some peace and calm.

18 Nov – Dealing with Resentment –  Without knowing it we can be holding on to some harm that we feel others have caused us in the past and for as long as we are this affects us now. What is resentment? And how can we be free from it? Come along and find out.

2 Dec – Dealing with Self-Criticism – We are thinking all the time and often about things we would rather not think about. Going over and over a situation and feeling overwhelmed. Through meditation we learn to watch our thoughts without needing to follow and fix them.

9 Dec – Dealing with Over-Thinking –  We can be our own worst critic. Telling ourselves we are not good enough, others don’t like us blah blah. We need to learn to identify the real cause of our problems, our negative states of mind and then we can press the stop button on all those unhelpful thoughts.

16 Dec – Dealing with Stress – What is stress? We say I’m stressed but what does that mean? Does it make sense to relate to an unpleasant state of mind. Through Buddha’s teachings we can stop building up pressure in our mind and be able to deal with each challenge as it arises
