In our modern and busy world, stress, depression and anxiety have increasingly become a common problem for many of us. We have to confront them daily, and while we want to experience inner peace and happiness, they tend to control our states of mind. Meditation and the methods from Buddha’s teachings can help us identify the origins of our problems and finally get rid of them, finding inner stability, joy and happiness in our lives. During this course, gain a spiritual perspective on overcoming your anxiety.
Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation to reduce stress and calm the body and mind. There will then be a short teaching on how to apply meditation to daily life to increase our positive minds and decrease negative minds like stress and anger.
Before Sharon moved to Asheville in 2011, she volunteered as the Education Program Coordinator for several years at Kadampa Meditation Center New York, where she also guided retreats and taught classes.
Today, Sharon is a part of the Special Teacher Training Program and teaches our Asheville branch class. Sharon and her husband have one son.
