Passion, anger, jealousy, or pride… In these challenging times, confused, wild emotions can dominate us in obvious and subtle ways. Without suppressing feelings or acting them out, Buddhist meditation works with emotions directly.  

Through meditation, we begin to work with emotions, to see how to transform confusion into wisdom, and to appreciate how every state of mind provides an opportunity to wake up to our innate wisdom and sanity. 

Open to all. Beginners to meditation welcome.
