Description:

In these busy times it is common to experience fear and anxiety, and as a result we often turn to things that don’t address the real problem. We may take refuge in denial, distractions, or medication, or we may try to control the circumstances of our life. Since we can never have complete control of what happens to us, these responses don’t address the real problem: our unpeaceful, disturbed states of mind.

Buddha taught methods for developing and maintaining a peaceful mind even in the face of great difficulties. These methods are simple and straightforward, and appeal to both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. They give us the capacity to respond to our circumstances in a realistic and constructive way. Through practicing them, we will come to know a deep inner peace that cannot be disturbed by changing conditions.

The class will consist of short meditations and teachings, and is suitable for everyone--no experience needed!
American Buddhist Monk Kelsang Wangpo offers essential and practical advice for anyone who has ever suffered from anxiety, loss or loneliness and depression. It is not necessary to attend all three classes in the series--please feel free to drop in. The classes are on the first Monday of the month.
$10 Class fee (free for Members)
