How to Stop Overthinking

How to Stop Overthinking

A half-day course with KMC Kent’s Principal Teacher James Baskerville

Saturday 8 July | 10am -1pm

Venue: Wye Village Hall, Bridge St, Wye, Ashford TN25 5EA

It’s impossible to stop thinking altogether. Thinking is necessary. We need to think, reflect, understand, know, make decisions etc. However, sometimes our thinking becomes circular, negative, stuck or unclear. We have a tendency to overthink things, and find it hard to ‘switch off’ which can be exhausting and unproductive.

Buddha’s teachings on the mind can help us to remain balanced, calm and clear as we navigate our busy modern world with all its stress and stimulation.

In this course, KMC Kent’s Principal Teacher James Baskerville you teach you methods to gain clarity and mental freedom.

Each session will consist of a talk and guided meditation plus time for Q&A.
