Meditation and Dharma Talk with Yushin Tipton (Online ONLY)

August 28, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

This Sunday Meditation and Dharma Talk will be held live **Online via Zoom ONLY** from 4:30 p.m. until 6 p.m.

The special topic for Sundays in August: Working with Difficult Emotions

Today’s topic: Sadness & Joy

At some point in our lives, especially during these trying times, we will have to deal with difficult emotions. We’ve usually developed coping mechanisms, but these may not always be the most skillful or beneficial means of facing our challenges. The Buddha offers a wise and compassionate way to turn towards our experience with kindness rather than with aversion.

Each Sunday during the month of August, our teachers will explore how to work with different emotions and mind states that we may find hard to be with. These will include shame, regret, grief, loss, love, hatred, sadness, and joy among others. Join us in August for these teachings on how to move away from our reactivity and towards liberation of the heart and mind.

There will be time for meditation, a dharma (teaching) talk by one of our regular or guest teachers, and time for your comments and questions.
