Dealing with Stress and Anxiety - Montrose Buddhist Meditation Classes 

With American Buddhist nun, Gen Norden.

Mondays, 7:30 – 9:00pm |  Bering United Methodist Church, 1440 Harold St, MONTROSE

Anxiety and stress are an increasingly common problem for people in our busy, modern world. These states of mind prevent us from experiencing peace and enjoying life.

Meditation is an effective way to combat negative states of mind and create a sense of mental freedom. By gaining experience of Buddhist meditation techniques and positive thinking we can learn to control our mind, rather than allowing our mind to control us. By learning to accept painful feelings rather than being panicked by them we can keep a calm and happy mind in all situations.

Each class contains a talk, guided meditation, discussion and Q and A. You may drop in for any or all of these classes. Everyone is welcome – no experience necessary.

May 6—Connecting with Inner Peace
May 13—Dealing with Painful Feelings
May 20—The Art of Staying Calm
May 27– Class break for Memorial Day
June 3—Learning to Let Go
June 10—Transforming Fear with Compassion
June 17—Spiritual Power: Connecting with Buddha’s Fearlessness

$10/class or $50 to sign up for all six classes.
