Lama Kathy Wesley – The Joy of Living Book Study

July 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC-7

We are thrilled to invite you to our Joyful Wisdom Book Study with Lama Kathy Wesley tonight at 6:30 PM PST.

Lama Kathy Wesley will teach from Joyful Wisdom by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, a book that directly addresses the timeless anxiety problem in our everyday lives. 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.

So what do we do? Escape or succumb? Both routes inevitably lead to more complications and problems in our lives. “Buddhism,” he says, “offers a third option. We can look directly at the disturbing emotions and other problems we experience as stepping stones to freedom. Instead of rejecting 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.

We start our sessions with a 15-minute silent meditation at 6:15 PM PST. Please be mindful when entering at that time.
