Riverdale Buddhist Meditation Class

Transforming Painful Emotions

This class is offered in-person only

In Buddhism, painful emotions are known as ‘delusions’. They are called this precisely because they are delusional ways of seeing the world and they distort our perceptions. Therefore, delusions such as anger, desirous attachment, jealousy, and deluded pride are completely unreliable states of mind, guaranteed to create unhappiness for ourself and others.

Buddha taught clear methods – based in meditation – for recognizing these delusions and transforming them into healthier, reality-based states of mind. By applying these methods and dismantling our painful states of mind we can remain peaceful and effective in even the most difficult situations. Could there be a more essential life skill?

October 11: Transforming Anger
October 18: Transforming the Pain of Grasping and Attachment
October 25: Transforming Jealousy
