Suzuki Roshi said, “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities …”

Combining mindfulness and specific therapeutic approaches, this workshop will examine how to best take care of ourselves by relating to depression and anxiety with compassion. The aim of the workshop is for participants to practice identifying, relating to and interrupting conditionings that are hindrances to feeling better. With encouragement and skillful means to interrupt the mind’s habitual patterns contributing to depression and anxiety, participants can cultivate practices to manage and prevent chronic feelings of unhappiness.

Appropriate for those who are new to meditation and for those who are experienced meditators, the workshop also meets the CE criteria for several health-care professional designations.

Fees: $100; $90 current SFZC members; $80 limited income.
