A half day meditation course run by a Buddhist nun is coming to March.
The event is open to all and is designed to help people properly switch off and relax.
Gen Kelsang Nyingpo, who has been a Buddhist for nearly 20 years and ordained as a nun for 18, will be leading the class.
She was resident teacher in Iceland for several years and at Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre in Brighton and is hailed for being a kind and down to earth teacher.
“The purpose of meditation is to make our mind more calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful we can free ourselves from worries and anxiety, and so we can begin to experience true happiness. By training in meditation we can gradually learn to stay peaceful all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances,” she said.
