Dharma Talks with Erric Solomon

Finding Peace from Within: Transforming Anger and Aggression into Awareness
Friday March 2, 7-9pm

In a moment of frustration, has your anger ever caused you emotional and physical angst? Have you experienced times at work where your heart starts beating uncontrollably and you get knots in your stomach? We all have. Whether it’s work, family, friends, or children that cause us to experience anger, it is a part of our daily lives.

Anger is an emotion with a wide range of intensity, from irritation to rage. It can be a physical reaction, a cognitive experience, or a behavior. Through meditation we can learn to go beyond thoughts and emotions and discover the natural peace and clarity of the mind. During this talk participants will learn how to begin to work with their emotions through meditation. A brief review of basic meditation practice will be presented, helpful for beginners and experienced meditators alike.

Overcoming Stress and Anxiety: Thriving in the City
Friday March 9, 7-9pm

Life can be hard sometimes. We are constantly worrying about meetings and deadlines at work; providing for our families; keeping in touch with friends, the list goes on. On top of that, the hustle and bustle of city life can add to all our stress and anxiety. It’s as if we live everyday of our lives enveloped by stress and anxiety. Our already busy schedules are constantly being pushed to the max. But by taking a few short moments several times a day to give ourselves a break, and release and relax the mind within its own natural awareness, we can lessen the impact that stress and anxiety has on our lives.

These talks will be useful for Buddhist practitioners at any level, looking to fuel their inspiration and motivation for practice. It will be led by Erric Solomon, a long time student of Sogyal Rinpoche. He has recently completed a 3-year retreat at Lerab Ling, Rigpa’s main retreat center, in France. He is the Executive Director of WhatMeditationReallyIs.com

Fees: Friday $20; Saturday $20; both days $35. No one will be turned away for lack of funds – and work/study available.
