One of the most respected living Tibetan Buddhist masters reveals the inner causes of modern overwhelm, sharing solutions to help us in the midst of our ever-accelerating lives.
When we're struggling with uncertainty and overload—in ourselves or in the world—what can we do to find calmness and clarity? Here, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche shows us the way.
The first step, he teaches, is to look closely at the tumult within us. And though it might sound paradoxical, the best place to start is not with our emotions, but with our thoughts. As Dzogchen Ponlop reflects:
"All of our feelings—fear, anger, sadness—are simply beautiful energies. But when we distort them with thinking, they become afflictions. Like the flapping of a butterfly's wings in chaos theory, even a small, fleeting thought can lead to big effects in the weather of our minds. But this means that just a little awareness and compassion can also create big changes."
Through key insights, meditation teachings, and humorous current-day examples that you'll be sure to relate to, these immersive audio sessions explore: how our thoughts and emotions generate suffering, the cognitive patterns that get us stuck in turmoil, how to rest in the gaps or "vanishing points" between thoughts, and simple ways to return the mind to its natural state of stillness.
Recorded at Naropa University in October 2019.
