Despite the fact that our lives are among the most privileged in the world, we spend so much time in the grip of boredom, sadness, dissatisfaction, and frustration. And why is it that we are so often consumed with feelings of fear, anxiety, depression, anger, and grief? Even if we had an answer to this question, is there really anything we could really do about it?
The ancient wisdom tradition of Buddhism has a definite answer to this question. It also proposes many techniques by which we can learn to work with and transform our afflictive emotions. Many of these techniques have now been researched and verified by modern clinical psychology and mind science.
More and more, they are regularly being used as clinical tools for the treatment of depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, entrenched grief and loss, and borderline personality disorder. Within a broader unpacking of the basic elements of Buddhist psychology, this seminar will instruct participants in some of these cognitive techniques. In depth instruction in the cultivation of mindfulness, psychological equanimity, and compassion will be highlighted.
