There are times when we feel like we’re merely bystanders in our own lives. As if we are mired in habit, unable to break the patterns of suffering, distress, and unhappiness in our day-to-day.
Perhaps you feel anxious about the state of the world. You feel reactive, alone, cut off… and you are unable to move forward unless things are ‘perfect’.
Perhaps it feels like you are always waiting for your life to begin. It is much easier to stay still—despite feeling trapped, limited, overwhelmed, and constricted.
Does this sound like you?
- You feel chronic anger, anxiety and lack focus no matter what activity you do
- You are harshly unforgiving of yourself, and are waging a constant battle within
- You feel embattled by the state of the world, unable to create or make real change
- You feel disconnected from your true self, with no sense of freedom or curiosity
- You are desperate to experience real change in your life but are lost on how to begin
If any of these scenarios resonate with you, you are not alone. Fortunately, these problems are universal—and so are the tools one can learn to manage them.
Here’s the truth: It’s not necessarily about trying to become somebody else to solve our problems. Neither is it about eliminating suffering from our lives altogether.
In my 50 years of teaching, practicing, and studying Buddhist psychology… In my decades of helping thousands of individuals from all walks of life apply practical meditation skills…
If there is anything I know to be true, it is that befriending ourselves on this journey is key to navigating this sacred life with more ease, balance, and presence.
Surrendering to both the good and bad in life is not about giving in. It is about letting go and releasing our attachments on the journey toward true inner freedom and expansion.
What if I told you that there was a way to remain steadfast and calm in the face of any crisis? A way to nurture the freedom within your soul—and embody true freedom in your life?
I assure you, it is possible. With the right tools, anyone can start skillfully navigating this journey—and start living a more creative, more joyful, more authentic life in a way that lasts.
