Mingyur Rinpoche writes “every chapter of our human history could be described as an 'age of anxiety.'" In reaction to any great difficulty, such as our worldwide present pandemic, we often indulge in typical reactive patterns, such as fight or flight or cave in. Mingyur’s work presents a way to engage based on Buddhist teachings and practices. He describes the sources of our unease. His scope includes common emotional, physical, and personal problems. His meditational methods describe processes to transform our neuroses into wisdom and compassion. In addition to analyzing this work, this course also will introduce students to basic meditation techniques. Two Wednesdays: January 27, February 3, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Online Class.
