Wednesdays, 12-1pm

Regular practice of mindfulness and meditation can help you manage your emotions, gain confidence, and stay calm in these modern turbulent times. In recent years we’ve witnessed remarkable material progress, but there has not been a corresponding increase in our happiness and inner peace. We suffer from worry, anxiety, and uncertainty about the future. We’ll explore ways to combat these worries with mindfulness methods and ways of thinking derived from Buddha’s teachings. This practice will help us face life’s unpredictability with fearless equanimity.

How to register?  This 6-week series is offered in partnership with Newton Community Education. You will need register directly for the whole series on the Newton Community Education website.
