Due to COVID-19 concerns, today’s class The Anxious Buddhist with Dr David Kittay is postponed to April 16. CLICK HERE to register for April 16 class.
Buddhism is a path for real people, and real people can be anxious. Especially these days. How does Buddhism consider anxiety, and what have Buddha and Buddhist teachers said about it? [delete: does Dr. Buddha have any treatments for it?] We’ll take a look at anxiety, its causes, and potential treatments from a Buddhist perspective, including approaches from Fundamental, Universal, and Esoteric Buddhism. Professor Kittay wants you to know that he’s not a therapist and not an expert on anxiety, but will speak mainly from his own experience of anxiety. He admits he is really nervous about this talk, but thinks it will be ok.
Dr. David Komodo Kittay teaches philosophy, religion, and technology at Columbia, where his courses are called “life changing,” translates exoteric and esoteric Buddhist texts, and founded and teaches at The Harlem Clemente Course for the Humanities at the Drew Hamilton Houses on 143rd St. He is a Tibet House Board member.
