The Confidence to Change

Half day course at Madhyamaka KMC

Saturday September 30th

Every teaching of Buddha is practical advice on how to improve ourselves and become the person we want to be. This course will empower us to develop great confidence in our potential and in our ability to create happiness.





Overcoming Stress, Anxiety and Worry

Half day course in York

Saturday October 21st
10am – 1pm

Stress, anxiety, and fear are nearly universal experiences of our busy modern lives. These very common states of mind rob us of our ability to enjoy our 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 will fall away, and we will 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

This half day workshop will be held at:
St Olave’s Church Hall,
Marygate Lane,
