Lecture w/ Sergio Ayala: Getting To The Root of Disturbing Emotions
4474 W. Adams Blvd. #204 Los Angeles, CA 90036
Monday January 21
We all want to be happy, and yet sometimes our emotions get the better of us and we feel terrible. What is the basis for emotions like anger or jealousy or attachment? How can we operate in our lives without being bossed around by our habitual reactions? If we experience a situation without being disturbed, what do we experience instead?
Join us for a lecture at the Los Angeles Diamond Way Buddhist Center on Monday, January 21st at 8pm about the nature of disturbing emotions.
Doors open at 8pm. The lecture will start at 8:15pm.
Following the lecture, there will be time for questions and answers as well as a short, guided meditation. No previous experience is necessary and we welcome the curious as well as those who have practiced for quite a while to join us.
We have plenty of meditation cushions as well as chairs, depending on your preference. It's a bit chilly this time of year, you may also want to bring a throw, sweater, or sweatshirt as a layer for optimal comfort.
There is free, street parking available around the Center. When you arrive, use the call box to the right of the front door. Scroll through the names until you see "Diamond Way" and hit the "Call" button.
Looking forward to seeing you!
