Meditation Workshop

how to stop overthinking

Sunday 12 February 10am - 1pm



It’s very easy to find ourselves in an overthinking headspace. Perhaps we ruminate and dwell on unhealthy thought processes a little too much, or have a tendency towards negative and circular ways of thinking, or maybe our mind just feels jam-packed and over-cluttered with too much mental busyness. Whatever our experience is, this workshop will help.

Buddhist nun, Gen Kelsang Ani, will explain what we can do in our everyday life to stop the habit of overthinking.

TIME: 10am to 1pm

COST: $50pp (includes morning tea)

What To Expect

There are two sessions in each workshop. They consist of an introduction, simple breathing meditation and teaching and conclude with a contemplative meditation on the teaching from that session.

Buddhist meditation involves staying alert and keeping our back straight, so we sit on chairs for the duration of the course. There’s no need to bring anything, although you may wish to bring some water and a jacket. Refreshments are provided in the break session.

Attendees come from all walks of life and there’s no need to have any meditation experience as all meditations are guided.  Everyone is welcome.
