Thе workshop has useful tools for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. We each have the potential to transform our suffering into happiness, to free ourselves from the prison of our problems. As practiced in Buddhism for more than 2,500 years, the process involves working with, rather than against, our depression, anxiety, and compulsions. We do this by recognizing the habitual ways our minds perceive and react — the way the mind misleads. Тhe practical exercises and inspiring real-world examples show how one can neutralize suffering and step onto the path of a radically liberating self-understanding. The workshop is based on my book of the same name, which is an excellent source for more information about these techniques.
