Buddhist Psychology: Mind Training for Modern People
Tuesdays · 7-8:30pm with Evelyn Williams
Train your mind! Do not fall into the trap of thinking you are stuck feeling a certain way forever. Buddhist psychology provides ingenious and novel ways to shift mental attitudes from states of loneliness, unhappiness, and anxiety to experiences of confidence, inner peace and inner strength. Throughout this course, we will examine various time-tested strategies for training the mind. In particular, we will look at methods that help us confront painful or unhappy ways of thinking and being and see how to work through them logically and effectively. You will leave this course feeling empowered to use these meditations both quietly in your own time and throughout the busyness and hectic pace of daily life.

We are live-streaming classes ONLY for residents of this local area (NY state, eastern PA, northern NJ, and western CT) and for those who would normally attend these onsite classes at the temple or our branch locations. If you do not currently attend a Kadampa center and do not live in this area, you can find a local center here
If you are a Kadampa student who does not regularly attend KMC New York’s classes or spiritual program, please DO NOT book. Please book weekly classes through your center.
Through her many years of practice and meditative experience, Evelyn has developed a special understanding of Kadampa Buddhism. With an insightful approach and peaceful heart, Evelyn shares Buddha’s teachings in a way that directly touches the hearts of listeners.
What to expect
Be guided in a short breathing meditation and connect to an experience of inner peace. No prior experience is necessary.
Every week the teachings explore one aspect of Dharma, or Buddha’s teachings, which focus on solutions to problems in daily life, inducing genuine optimism and increased happiness.
To finish the class, we will engage in another meditation based on the teaching that was given.
