Dates of VIDEO calls and DISCUSSIONS together – Save these dates!

February 18 discussion circle at 2pm, and Prajna Studios sent us a new 17 min. clip of Pema talking about 3 ways to work with emotions.

Pema is teaching on “Taking a Mindful Gap”, excerpted from Turn Your World Around: Three Steps for Emotional Transformation:
What are the causes of our suffering, and what can we do to lessen them—and in turn, lessen our suffering? Buddhist teachings offer a unique perspective on the nature of human suffering and brilliant teachings and practices for working with it. In this video clip, Pema introduces a practice that she uses and teaches regularly in order to not let our kleshas—our afflictive emotions—carry us away.
