Med­i­ta­tion and cop­ing with pain

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR NEWS -

Liv­ing with chronic pain can be de­bil­i­tat­ing, de­press­ing and cause peo­ple to feel over­whelmed and out of con­trol. A med­i­ta­tion half-day course at Stam­ford Arts Cen­tre, run by Peter­bor­ough’s Drolma Bud­dhist Cen­tre on Sun­day (14th) from 2.30-5pm will look at tech­niques to help cope with, and re­duce, pain. The course com­prises two one-hour ses­sions with a tea break and an op­por­tu­nity to chat and ask ques­tions. Ev­ery­one is wel­come. Seat­ing will be on con­fer­ences­tyle chairs, and you are wel­come to bring any equip­ment with you to make your­self more com­fort­able. The teacher will be Sue, who has lived with chronic pain since child­hood, and has been prac­tis­ing med­i­ta­tion for over seven years. Drolma also has a Med­i­ta­tion Au­tumn Wood­land Re­treat at Fi­ne­shade Wood near Dud­ding­ton with Bud­dhist nun Kel­sang Rak-ma on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 20, 10.30am - 1.15pm.
