How to Beat Anxiety and Depression and Find a Happy Life

Gaining mastery over our inner demons using wisdom and compassion

About the Public Talk

with Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab

Many people today feel lost, even broken, with life seeming to have no meaning. Worry, anxiety, despair and depression consume both energy and relationships across the world, everybody is involved. However, the teachings of Buddha offer ancient wisdom and practical compassion which, if actively put into our lives, can utterly transform our world bringing hope, purpose, light and meaning where previously there was only misery and darkness. Tonight’s talk will explain how it is possible for us to transform our mind from its present confused and self-centred state into perfect wisdom and compassion and thereby fulfil our deepest wishes for a happy life. Everybody is welcome!

About the Weekend Retreat

with Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab & others

In this special retreat, suitable for people new to Buddhism, we re-visit themes previously covered in Sunday morning classes: what causes us to become angry, anxious and depressed; how to overcome feelings of loneliness and isolation and how we can begin to defeat these bad experiences, to banish them from our life, by reclaiming control of our experiences. We will be exploring practical methods to rid our mind of negativities and replace them with peace, positivity and mental freedom giving us a happy and fulfilled life.

In each session there will be 2 guided meditations and an opportunity for questions.
