Taming Anxiety for People of Color

March 7 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

with Rev. Liên Shutt 

Does your mind seem to “be all over the place”? Do you find yourself worrying a lot? Do you feel easily overwhelmed and filled with anxiety? Do you obsess about “shoulds’” and “coulds’” and, therefore, find it hard to focus? Buddhist teachings and meditation practices have long addressed ways to be with such emotions and thoughts. In this one-day, we will gather and to learn ways in which we can work with worry and anxiety. You’ll learn ways to be with these emotions and be able to practice meditations, which can foster calm and ease in body and mind.

Stationary and walking meditations, Dharma teachings, group discussions and experiential exercises are offered.

Space is limited and registration is requested.
