The Toronto Centre for Applied Buddhism is happy to announce our upcoming program :
Buddhist Mindfulness Psycho-education (on-line) Program:
Applying Mindfulness in Dealing with Difficult Thoughts and Emotions
for young adults & college students under 30
4 Saturdays: Feb 19 – Mar 12, 2022, 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm
This program will begin with exploring what participants consider as stress, as well as what the Buddha and western sciences say about stress. We will then delve into some Buddhist approaches for dealing with difficult thoughts and emotions. A key Buddhist practice is mindfulness. The program will introduce some foundational knowledge in Buddhism addressing topics such as the relationship between ethics and mindfulness and the nature of mind and consciousness that are important for mindfulness practice. Participants will learn and practise how mindfulness can be applied in daily life when facing stress, or when experiencing difficult emotions and thoughts. Some exercises from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy will also be introduced. Interactive discussions will be encouraged. Participants are expected to turn on their Zoom video.
