Please join us Friday evening, February 15 at the McGowan House Zendo (381 High St. at Franklin, Monterey) for a Dharma Talk introducing the topic of Taming Anxiety. There is a suggested donation of $10-$20 for the talk. The one-day workshop at the Carl Cherry Center will be Saturday February 16 10:15 am – 4:00 pm ($55 - $75 sliding scale}. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds (work scholarships are also available). Please bring a bag lunch.

Does your mind seem to “be all over the place”? Do you find yourself worrying a lot? Do you feel easily overwhelmed and filled with anxiety? Do you obsess about “shoulds’” and “coulds’” and, therefore, find it hard to focus?

Buddhist teachings and practices have long addressed ways to be with such emotions and thoughts. In this one-day, we gather to work with worry and anxiety: how to be with these emotions and engage with practices which can foster calm and ease in both body and mind.

Dharma teachings, meditations, group discussions and experiential exercises are offered.

Open to all
