About the Talk

In this sharing session, Sis Miyen will explore basic tenets of Buddhism that have many commonalities with modern psychology e.g. the four Brahma Viharas have become important modern psychological interventions like mindfulness and compassion-based therapies, gratitude practice, etc.
