How to Stop Overthinking at Grafham Water

Saturday 7th September 2024

Morning Course:  10:30am – 1:00 pm

Slow down your mind and find inner peace.  By learning to address overthinking we can both find greater happiness and open doors to our spiritual progress.

Over thinking can tie us up in knots and bring us down. This morning meditation workshop will help those of us who find ourselves sometimes stuck in repetitive, negative and unhelpful thought patterns. By drawing upon the wisdom of Buddhist teachings we can learn practical tools for managing our thoughts and making our minds  calmer and more peaceful..

Our workshops are a perfect way to both relax and develop internally. They are ideal for those who are new to meditation and those who would like to improve.

Suitable for beginners and those wishing to gain a deeper experience of meditation.

Held in a beautiful lakeside lodge, refreshments and lunch are available from the modern and friendly cafe on site.

The course comprises two one-hour sessions each with guided meditations and teachings offering practical advice. There will be a half hour break in which you can enjoy the cafe, browse our book stall, ask questions or take a walk in the beautiful lakeside setting.

Light lunches are available in the modern and friendly Harbour View Cafe on site.

Seating is on chairs and no special clothing is required.
