Vissudhimaggha study session and group meditation
Tuesdays at 6:30 PM.
A Meditative Approach to Stress, Anxiety, and Depression.
The program will happen over three evenings:
November 18th - 20th, 7PM at the Dharma Centre.
These talks will be of interest to those who suffer from stress, anxiety, and depression, their friends and families, as well as physicians, therapists and care-givers. Each session will last approximately ninety minutes, with lots of opportunity for questions.
The talks are geared toward a secular audience. The language will be straightforward, the approach practical and non-religious. The intention is to provide participants with some understanding about how we humans get into unpleasant, negative, painful, and unproductive states of mind and to offer some useful meditative remedies. The suggestions are not meant to supplant or replace medical or psychological treatments that participants might already be involved in. They are meant to augment and support positivity and calm.
The program develops a coherent theme over the three sessions so it makes sense to attend the whole series. All are welcome. Kindly let me know if you plan to attend. There is no charge for this program: In the traditional way a bowl will be set out for donations.
