Special Saturday Summer Series:
Making our Suffering Workable
Working with Our Emotions Not Against
with guest teacher, Vijay Yeeda
Starts Saturday, August 17th
11:00 - 12:30pm
$15 per class or Free for Supporting Members
According to Buddha our suffering comes about due to the uncontrolled and painful states of mind, known as the delusions. During this series, Vijay will explore Buddha’s illuminating teachings on these painful minds and how to overcome them. Each week, he will focus on how to deal with a particular delusion, learning practical methods to reduce its hold on us and in this way allowing us to experience a deep and satisfying emotional freedom. As our delusions diminish we will draw closer to the person we wish to be: a joyful, confident and loving person.
These Saturday classes are designed for those who wish to use Buddhist meditation and practice as a means for helping us to cease the painful and unreliable approaches we too often use in seeking authentic healing. These methods are simple, relaxing, and they work. Each class will consist of guided meditations, a talk and a discussion.
