Advice for Anxious Times – Saturday, May 7 from 10am to 12:30pm

Stress, anxiety and depression are endemic in our busy, fast paced life. We tend to think that situations or people in our life are the causes of our stress or unhappiness, so we then spend a lot of time mentally trying to figure out how to fix those situations or people, which often just makes our mind busier.

Buddha taught that all our unhappiness, stress and anxiety comes from our mind. More specifically it comes from our unrealistic expectations and our exaggerated views of ourself, people around us and the world in general.

By learning to identify the actual causes of stress and unhappy thoughts, we can begin to understand how to become free from them.  This workshop with Gen Khedrub will offer you special ways of thinking and meditations that heal the mind of the source of these problems.

In person or online. This class will be delivered in-person and online via a Zoom webinar. Kadampa Meditation Center Boston is located at 2298 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge, just a few blocks from the Davis Square T stop. After registering you will receive instructions on how to join in the sessions online.

Gen Kelsang Khedrub is the Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center Boston. He has been studying and practicing Kadampa Buddhism under the guidance of Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for almost 30 years. Gen Khedrub has served as a Resident Teacher in Chicago and in Seattle, and over the years he has taught special events and led meditation retreats around the country. His heartfelt teachings are presented with clarity and humor that make them accessible to everyone. Through his humility and deep understanding of Buddha’s teachings, Gen Khedrub provides an inspiring example of a contemporary Buddhist practitioner we can follow.
