Saturday 6 March |10.00am – 1.00pm
Half-Day Online Meditation Workshop with Buddhist Teacher Chelvi Mailvaganan
(Video Catch-up available for 7 days)
Everyone experiences the pain associated with craving and attachment, and many people suffer from some type of addiction. Through exploring Buddha’s profound teachings and meditations we can learn how to overcome compulsive ways of thinking and acting that compel us to seek satisfaction from deceptive sources.
Whether we struggle with food, drugs, social media, relationships or any form of addictive behavior, this workshop will consist of talks and guided meditations designed to help participants gain insight into the pervasive and painful mental habits of craving, attachment, and addiction in order to gradually transform them into the path of spiritual development.
Suitable for everyone!
