A talk entitled ‘The Art of Positive Thinking’ will take place from 7 - 8:30pm on Monday 13 May at the Friends Meeting House in Scarborough on Quaker Close. The talk will be given by Buddhist Monk, Gen Tharpa, who is a senior teacher of the New Kadampa Tradition, and who has been teaching Modern Buddhism in Spain, Portugal and England for over 30 years.

The evening will consider that whether we experience a happy, meaningful life, full of exciting challenges and opportunities for growth, or a stressful, unhappy life full of difficulties and problems, all depends on our way of thinking! Happiness and suffering are states of mind; with meditation, we can train ourselves to think positively and to maintain an authentic experience of inner peace, even in difficult situations, and discover the potential for lasting happiness and joy within our own minds.

Everybody is welcome to this event which costs £6 and includes refreshments. There is no need to book in advance and seating is on chairs. Weekly meditation classes take place at the same venue, place and time. See:
