How to transform your life: Staying positive at work

Our work forms an integral part of our daily lives. However, the job we do and the environment we work in are often causes of considerable stress. Such stress is seemingly endless, ranging from difficult relationships with colleagues, through to the extremes of either being overworked from pressurized deadlines and unreasonable expectations, or underchallenged from repetitive tasks that lead to boredom and stagnation.

The key question, then, is how can we stay positive in the midst of all these problems?

In this workshop, we will explore the various challenges of our working life, and find creative ways of developing a positive attitude towards them from a Buddhist perspective. We will examine how meditation can empower us to maintain a peaceful mind, thereby enabling us to remain calm and happy at work, even in the most challenging of circumstances.

Since we all wish to find lasting peace and happiness, the step-by-step meditations we will learn in this workshop are open to and effective for everyone, irrespective of whether we regard ourselves a Buddhist or not. This means that anyone who attends will be able to take away a practical toolkit for enjoying a happy, meaningful life filled with positivity. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon!

Divided into two one-hour sessions, the workshop will be based on teachings from the renowned Buddhist Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, founder of the New Kadampa Tradition. It will be led by Matt Lucas, a native English-speaker based in the Kansai region, who has been practising Buddhist meditation for over fifteen years.

The meditations will draw from the book “How to Transform Your Life,” which is available for free download here:

Everyone is warmly welcomed, including non-native speakers and people of all spiritual inclinations, as well as those with no spiritual background and complete beginners. Feel free to message if you have any questions.

The workshop will be held in a yoga studio near Umeda. Not only is the central location easily accessible, but it is also a perfect space conducive to meditation. Come and join us in this oasis of peace in the heart of the city!
