This weekend workshop will focus on how to live peacefully with difficult emotions and life’s stresses from three perspectives.

Jennifer will focus on using movement, breath, and mudras to help connect mind, body, and emotion. 

Ven. Dr. Cheolsoeng will focus on the psychology of emotions, and Buddhist meditation techniques for working with strong emotions.  Students learn how to empower their mind, work smart, and stay calm yet capable, through even the toughest challenges by applying specific breathing and mindfulness techniques.
