Booking Online Required!
Parenting may be our most important and rewarding task, yet dealing with the everyday pressures of family life is a constant challenge.
Is it possible to be confident and relaxed as a parent, instead of feeling stressed, overwhelmed and second guessing ourself all of the time?
Learning to apply simple meditation techniques and wisdom based mindset shifts, we can experience a place of calm inside, even when our family life is busy, difficult or completely chaotic. Practically, if we develop a peaceful mind and inner wisdom, this will give us the skill and confidence that we need to bring harmony and happiness to our family life.
In this course, Kadampa Meditation teacher Chelvi will use both her own experience as a parent, and Buddha’s time-tested teachings, to share insights that you can use right now to enable yourself and your family to live a healthier and more positive life.
This half day course will be led by Kadampa Buddhist Teacher, Chelvi Mailvaganan.
Chelvi has been a Kadampa Buddhist for 20 years. She is a mother and social worker, specialising in end of life care. Meditation has helped transform and heal many aspects of Chelvi’s life. She teaches from her own experience and wealth of knowledge, emphasising how to apply Buddhist methods to everyday life with insight and clarity.
