ONLINE ONLY: How to Cultivate Mental Balance and Well-Being
July 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Due to the extreme weather conditions, this event will now be online only.
About this event
Clinical psychology has focused primarily on the diagnosis and treatment of mental disease, and only recently has scientific attention turned to understanding and cultivating positive mental health. The Buddhist tradition, on the other hand, has focused for over 2,500 years on cultivating exceptional states of mental well-being as well as identifying and treating psychological problems. [How do we] draw on centuries of Buddhist experiential and theoretical inquiry as well as current Western experimental research to highlight specific themes that are particularly relevant to exploring the nature of mental health[?]
In this talk, Glen Svensson will be discussing how to cultivate mental balance and well-being through cultivating the four types of mental balance: motivational, attentional, cognitive and emotional.
Is this for me?
Absolutely! If you’re interested in how Buddhist and Western psychological approaches intersect, and how they might complement each other in helping you achieve greater peace of mind, come along!
