“Getting Off the Emotional Rollercoaster” is the name of this year’s annual “What the Buddhists Teach” program at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York. Co-presented by the Shambhala Sun Foundation, it will run from July 19 to 21 and feature Anyen Rinpoche, Polly Young-Eisendrath, and John Tarrant, all exploring emotions and how to work with them in everyday life. During the weekend, participants will 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.
