Zoom Series: Buddhist Approaches to Fear and Anxiety

From May 07, 2020 7:00 pm until 8:15 pm


The Less Anxious Buddhist

Buddhism is a path for real people, and real people can be anxious. Especially these days. How does Buddhism consider anxiety, and what have Buddha and Buddhist teachers said about it? Does Dr. Buddha have any treatments for it? We’ll take a look at anxiety, its causes, and potential treatments from a Buddhist perspective, including approaches from the Sutras, the Abhidharma, and Tantra. Professor Kittay wants you to know that he’s not a therapist and not an expert on anxiety, but will speak mainly from his own experience of anxiety. He is really nervous about this talk, but thinks it will be ok.

Will be held Thursdays, April 23 and 30, May 7 and 14, 7-8:15 pm
