TRANSFORMING NEGATIVE EMOTIONS: Coping with Anxiety, Depression and Beyond
Saturday, November 9th
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The desire for happiness serves as a major motivation in our lives, yet we often experience numerous obstacles to achieving it. Despite our material comforts and beneficial circumstances, frustration, fear, anxiety, depression, along with other less than generous mind states, cloud our view.
This workshop identifies afflictive states of mind (anger, attachment, pride, jealousy, depression, anxiety, fear, etc.) and explores a variety of healthy coping mechanisms that can help transform everyday challenges into a more realistic and peaceful experience.
Open to all levels.
$45.00 per person (all proceeds from this event go to Venerable Amy Miller and The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition)
