How to Not Lose Your Mind in a Time of Political Strife

How to Not Lose Your Mind in a Time of Political Strife
Sundays - September 16, 23, & 30 - 6:30 - 8:30pm

 

Does the world seem a little crazier than usual? Has your mind been disturbed by recent political chaos? If so, you’re not alone. 
Many of us are looking for better approaches to overcome divisiveness, anger, and hate.
In Buddhism, there isn’t one way to navigate a chaotic world. Buddhism is like a bike with different gears. When the mental afflictions get really tough, you need to learn how to shift gears, quickly, to find what brings you peace.

 

These classes share three different Buddhist approaches to avoid falling into madness while engaging to create a better world. 

 

1. The monastic approach for how to let go and back away from what’s causing pain.
2. The bodhisattva approach for how to engage with compassion and wisdom to create a better world for everyone.
3. The yogi’s approach for how to transform suffering and find the natural nirvana within everything.
You can use these same techniques to deal with any turmoil in your life. The current climate of political strife just makes now a crucial time to slay mental afflictions. 

 

These classes are taught by James Connor and Kristin Walsh from GoBeyond.org, long-time practitioners who recently completed a three-year meditation retreat.
