Managing Stress The Buddhist Way

Saturday February 6th 

One Day Online Workshop with Bhante Pemaratana

Saturday, February 6th - 1:00 - 4:00PM

Optional Meditation with Monk San 10 - 12 PM


Stress has become a part of our modern living. Yet, it doesn’t have to be in control of our life. We have the potential to rise above stress. In this three-hour workshop, you will learn from the scientific and Buddhist perspectives 1) what stress is, 2) how stress arises, 3) how to manage stress, 4) and how to prevent stress. You will also get hands-on experience on Buddhist meditative techniques to reduce stress.
