Ebola? ISIS? We have so many modern conveniences and comforts but still anxiety and despair rule our connected world. What can we do about it? Escape? Succumb to a feeling of hopelessness?
“From the 2,500-year-old perspective of Buddhism, every chapter in human history could be described as an ‘age of anxiety.’ The anxiety we feel now has been part of the human condition for centuries,” Yongey Mingyur writes in his book Joyful Wisdom.
“Buddhism,” he says, “looks directly at the disturbing emotions and other problems we experience in our lives as stepping-stones to freedom. Instead of rejecting them or surrendering to them, we can befriend them, working through them to reach an enduring authentic experience of our inherent wisdom, confidence, clarity, and joy.”
Join us this fall and winter as we delve into Joyful Wisdom. Starting 9/15.
