In this way we can return to our day with a calm, clear and peaceful mind, feeling genuinely refreshed and re-energised for the rest of the day ahead.
The Power of Positive Thinking
Is your glass half full or half empty? Whether we experience a happy, meaningful life full of exciting challenges and opportunities for growth, or a stressful, unhappy life full of difficulties and problems, all depends on our way of thinking! Happiness and suffering are states of mind; with meditation, we can train ourselves to think positively and to maintain an authentic experience of inner peace, even in difficult situations, and discover the potential for lasting happiness and joy within our own minds.
Come and discover the Power of Positive Thinking!
Training in Letting Go (Midleton)
Whether it’s a touch of the winter blues, increasing stress, anxiety or other unhealthy emotions, negative self-talk or tendencies towards overthinking and distraction, we can all get caught up in these at times.
In this new series of drop-in weekly talks and guided meditations with Kelsang Drolma, learn proven methods for everyone to train in letting them go in the moment and become increasingly free of them moment to moment.
Also, discover how to view life from a fresh new perspective that enables us to maintain a peaceful, positive mind no matter what’s happening in our day or life, that naturally prevents unhealthy emotions and the unhelpful mental habits that generate them, from arising in the first place.
Nov 7 – How it’s possible to let go and unlock our full potential
Nov 14 – Letting go of overthinking, stress & anxiety, finding peace of mind
Nov 21 – Letting go of craving & distraction, enjoying inner freedom
