Thursdays · 7-8:30pm with Evelyn Williams, Meditation Teacher, Kadampa Meditation Center New York
Everyone gets angry. Whether it is some minor irritation or annoyance up to intense rage, some form of non-acceptance towards our life’s circumstances rises up once in a while. Even though this is common, anger in all its various forms ends up causing more harm than good. It solves nothing–anything accomplished under the name of anger can more productively be accomplished through patience, love, and compassion. In addition, it makes us unhappy, irrational and erratic, and hard to be around for others. Take a healthy approach to deal with the emotions related to anger through using Buddhist meditation. You can learn how to clearly identify anger and distinguish yourself from it, so you can be hard on anger while still being kind to yourself. Finally, by using different meditative strategies, you can uproot and let go of it altogether. Each class includes 2 short guided meditations and practical teachings for living a positive, happy life. No experience needed, we sit in chairs. (845)845-9000.
