Registration now open for “Getting Off the Emotional Rollercoaster” at Omega Institute

Registration is now open for the annual “What the Buddhists Teach” program at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York. This year’s program, “Getting Off the Emotional Rollercoaster,” is co-presented by the Shambhala Sun Foundation. It runs from July 19 to 21 and features Anyen Rinpoche, Polly Young-Eisendrath, and John Tarrant exploring emotions and how to work with them in everyday life. During the weekend, participants learn to cultivate a sense of calm and spaciousness, make friends with negative emotions, transform the inner dialogue that accompanies them, and apply helpful Buddhist techniques to deal with them on the spot.

The retreat combines presentations, meditation, and discussion, and draws on the wisdom of three major Buddhist traditions: Vipassana, Zen, and Tibetan Buddhism. The program is open to both experienced Buddhist practitioners and those who are new to Buddhism. For more information and to register, click here.
