Though we may think of sitting still as a way to find peace, it’s not always what we find when we engage in formal sitting practice. We often find ourselves instead grappling with unwholesome mental states—craving, boredom, anxiety, and melancholy.

Michael will offer meditative techniques and strategies to develop the emotional strength and resilience we need in times of great stress.
