In this fast-paced world, where everyone suffers from overflowing email inboxes, information overload and intense deadlines, stress, anxiety, and pressure to succeed are on the rise across all age groups and professions.
The antidote to this scattered, sometimes frantic, state which helps you return to the present moment so you can be fully aware, and appreciative of joy, beauty, and peace in our everyday life is having a Mindfulness meditation practice.
CaltechC will be hosting "Mindfulness: Changing Confusion to Clarity from a Chinese Chan Perspective", a discussion by three professors from Dharma Realm Buddhist University (DRBU.org). This workshop will touch on general principle of Buddhism and ways to improve your state of mind using techniques that have been practiced for more than 2500 years.
The lead lecturer, Dharma Master Heng Chih, was one of the first American nuns ordained in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and has been translating sacred texts and teaching meditation for over 44 years around the world. Dharma Master Heng Liang is the Dean of Students at DRBU and the former editor of Vajra Bodhi Sea magazine with over 32 years experience teaching both monastics and laity in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. Dharma Master Heng Liang is an Assistant Professor at DRBU and received her PhD from UCLA.
