Albany Meditation

Update: This will be our last livestream series for Albany. Our Saratoga Springs will return in person September. We will keep you updated when our Albany branch is in person.

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.
