Dealing with Depression and Discouragement

A Meditation Half Day Workshop
Sat 22 June · 9.30am – 1.15pm · $50
Buddha described many techniques for dealing with the heavy weight of depression, sadness and despondency; from simple techniques for enduring the worst of our painful emotions to deeper reflections on the realities of our struggling world.


In this workshop we will learn some of these techniques and see in our own experience how they bring peace, insight and an inner optimism that previously seemed impossible.
