A Steady Heart in Turbulent Times: A public discussion with The Buddhist Center Director Tim Olmsted

In the face of personal, economic, environmental and political forces that appear to be beyond our control, many of us are left feeling anxious, frustrated and powerless. Join us for an evening to discuss how to navigate these turbulent times wisely, and with a heart that’s open and connected to the world.
