Room: Main Shrine Room

Emotions are a part of being human. It is through emotion that we experience life and connect with our world. At the same time, emotions can be painful and over whelming, quickly becoming a source of suffering and struggle as we try to control or avoid them. Through the practice of meditation, we cultivate an atmosphere of friendliness to our self within which we can transform our relationship with emotions from one of suffering and struggle to one of gentleness, openness and curiosity.

This workshop will include basic mindfulness-awareness meditation instruction and practice. We will explore ways to work directly with some of the more challenging emotions that arise in daily life
Learning to Work with Emotions is part of the Learn to Live Mindfully series: workshops that offer practical teachings and meditation techniques to help us grow into more mindful and compassionate human beings. These workshops include guided meditation, teaching and group conversation.

Open to everyone!
