Learn how to practice the healing arts of Buddhist psychology during this time of social, racial, and political fractures.
Date and Time: Saturday, February 22, 2020 @ 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Location: SF Zen Center Conference Center, 308 Page Street, San Francisco, CA 94102
Join us for a public talk with Dr. Pilar Jennings, NYC based psychoanalyst and Buddhist teacher, as she explores how to practice the healing arts of Buddhist psychology during a time of social, racial, and political fractures. Together we will reflect on the enormous challenge facing us to remain curious about those whose beliefs and actions conflict with our own. What does it mean to be compassionate in the face of values and beliefs that cause suffering? This is one of many questions we will tackle together.
Dr. Pilar Jennings is a psychoanalyst in private practice in NYC and a core faculty member of the Contemplative Psychotherapy Program offered by the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science. A visiting lecturer at Union Theological Seminary and a guest lecturer at Columbia University, she is the author of "Mixing Minds: The Power of Relationship in Psychoanalysts and Buddhism" and "To Heal a Wounded Heart: The Transformative Power of Buddhism and Psychotherapy in Action".
