Friday, July 22, 2016 — A Public Event with Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
Emotions bring color and meaning to our lives, but they can also put us on an exhausting rollercoaster ride that takes us to blissful peak states, the depths of delusion and despair, and everything in between. Only by learning to relate to our emotions skillfully can we benefit from their richness and gain wisdom, instead of letting them control us. When we bring awareness to our emotions, something truly amazing happens – they lose their power to make us miserable.
When you begin to open your heart to the suffering of the world, it can sometimes feel overwhelming. How do we work with the intense emotions that arise, so we can find ways to act with compassion in our communities?
Friday, July 22, 2016, Nitartha Institute will host a very special evening program featuring our founding teacher, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.
Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche will teach on the 3-step Emotional Rescue Plan for working with disturbing emotions, from his new book Emotional Rescue: How to Work with Your Emotions to Transform Hurt and Confusion into Wisdom that Empowers You.
