MEDITATION & MODERN BUDDHISM
Mental Health: A Buddhist Perspective
Many people are reeling from the various stressors of modern life: the pandemic and all of its downstream effects, social unrest, economic uncertainty, and a general lack of direction and lack of purpose in life. This is a perfect storm for a mental health crisis, which we can see unfolding before our eyes in families and communities.
There is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved. Everyone is welcome, regardless of belief; you do not need to be Buddhist to attend. No pre-registration necessary.
