Powerful Emotions and the Dharma Path
With Dan Hessey and Gery Amori
This course consists of 5 recorded talks and one live session. The Live session will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 20th. Time TBA
In this 6-session series, we will look at what the Buddha taught about working with emotions. Strong emotions are challenging for all of us, and how we express our emotions can be challenging for those around us as well.
The Buddha taught that after we acknowledge the suffering associated with strong emotions, we need to look deeply into their cause and function before we can work with them intelligently, gently, and effectively.
In this course we will take a close look at how emotions arise, how they manifest in our lives as suffering and how dharma practitioners of all levels of experience can begin to overcome that suffering and open our hearts.
When we look closely, we discover that strong emotions arise powerfully from a tiny fuse of flickering thoughts. That means that if we can learn to be fully present, we don’t have to explode when difficult situations arise.
Dharma teaches us how to work with emotions without adding further aggression, self criticism and confusion to our lives.
Each stage of the buddhist path (yana) depends on the discipline and awareness of the previous one as we take the journey of letting go of ego fixation and opening to compassion and wisdom.
In this course we will look at the Hinayana, the Mahayana, and
a peek into the Vajrayana views of working with emotions.
You are warmly invited to join us.
