This week’s talk focused on how Buddhist concepts and practices can be beneficially applied to contemporary distress.  Peter cited recent research that reports the frequency of stress-related physical and psychological disorders.  Peter’s many years as a psychotherapist as well as a practicing Buddhist provide important insights regarding these issues.  Unfortunately, technical problems with the recording process distorted the recording, so it is hard to discern the words.  I hope it is beneficial despite the defects.

Here are the notes prepared for this talk:  STRESS AND THE DHAMMA

Next week’s talk will focus on how Buddhist principles and practices can help overcome the various clinical anxiety disorders.
