We encounter conflict, confusion, and chaos everyday in society as well as within our own minds. Join psychologist Dan Rubin for a workshop focused on practical skills for finding confidence, gentleness, and skillfulness when faced with aggression. War represents the struggle with the three mental poisons identified by the Buddha: passion, aggression and ignorance. Victory is being willing to face these poisons and meet them with insight and loving kindness. When we can face aggression with compassion and awareness, we create peace, protect the sanity of non-aggression, and attain victory over war. This class is open to anyone interested in peace, conflict resolution, and meditation. It does not require any knowledge of Buddhism. Please feel free to inquire about our Generosity Policy.
