Letting go of anxiety

Talks & guided meditations
Jun, Sat 8th | 10:30 – 13:45 | with Kadam Adam | at Republic of Work, 12 South Mall, Cork T12 RD43 (opposite Imperial Hotel)

Our busy lives, constant juggling of responsibilities, and the general state of our world today, can leave us all feeling a little (or a lot) anxious and powerless at times. In this half-day course with Kadam Adam, discover how meditation and improving our mindfulness, gives us the power to recognise, reduce and let go of worry and anxiety.

We will explore how worry and anxiety has its roots in how we relate to ourselves, others and the world around us. By cultivating new, healthier and wiser ways of relating to ourselves, others and life, we become confident we can be free of worry and anxiety.

We will explore how we can fearlessly face the inevitable difficulties we meet in life, with genuine peace of mind and inner strength, free of the anxiety and stress they normally produce. In this way, we learn how to move beyond anxiety, and develop and maintain genuine happiness and emotional well being, no matter what is happening in our lives.

Suitable for beginners and those with more experience, the morning includes talks and guided meditations, with time for Q&A. No need to bring anything, except a notebook and pen if you wish to take some notes. Dress code is whatever you’re comfortable in. Chairs provided for everyone.

Course fee: €30 | €20 for Tara KMC supporting members & study programme students
Includes tea, coffee and pastries

Enjoy a deeply relaxing and revitalising weekend break from it all, in the tranquil and beautiful setting of Loughcrew Estate. On this meditation retreat with Kadam Adam, discover the inspiring and healing power of meditations and practises of loving kindness, to enable us to find deep inner peace, genuine happiness and emotional well-being in our lives, and all our relationships.

Discover how we all have an innate potential for great loving kindness, peace, happiness and other good qualities in our hearts. On this relaxing weekend getaway, Kadam Adam will explain a step-by-step approach, and guide us in deeply peaceful and inspiring meditations, that show us how to connect to, cultivate and actualise this inner potential.

We will learn meditations and practices for daily life, from the Buddhist meditation tradition, that have proven effective for centuries in enabling everyone (Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike) to learn how to live with a consistent and authentic sense of self-esteem, loving kindness, inner peace and joy, whatever is happening in our day, and lives. The retreat is suitable for beginners and those with more experience of meditation.

The weekend starts with an introduction session at 7.30pm on Friday and finishes with lunch at 1pm on Sunday. During the breaks in the meditation sessions, you can take a peaceful walk in the beautiful surrounding countryside or simply relax, or chat with the other people on the retreat, in what is always a warm, friendly, and relaxed atmosphere.
