Many city people deal with chronic stress and worry from work, school, family, marriage, and interpersonal relationships. Are you currently experiencing anxiety or stress from any of these? Living in an increasingly results-oriented and materialistic society can cause many of us to experience negative emotions, such as depression, anxiety, and fear. How can we learn to manage and overcome these difficult emotions? In this lecture, Venerable Guan Cheng teaches you how to free yourself from your emotions and worries through the simple yet powerful practice of meditation and mindfulness.
