Letting Go of Stress and Anxiety – Week of 1 April to week of 29 April 5 weeks

Many people suffer from anxiety and stress at some time or other. Sometimes it is due to stressful work, sometimes due to problems at home, and sometimes due to difficult relationships.

On this course, learn how anxiety and stress, as well as other conditions such as tension, nervousness, worry and depression have their roots in our state of mind and show how we can reduce and eventually overcome these conditions by working on our mind with a combination of meditation and positive thinking.

What to expect at a class:

The classes run for 90 minutes. Anyone can practise meditation and everyone is welcome to attend. There is no physical exercise involved and you can choose to sit either in a chair or on a cushion.

These classes are suitable for all levels of experience.
