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.


(Excerpt from the book The Misleading Mind)

When we are nervous before seeing the dentist, our anxiety is not seen as something separate from our sense of self. We say, “I’m really nervous about getting my teeth drilled,” and the internal experience is not one of a “designated” or “relative” self and nervousness. We are nervous. This misconception or dynamic, and it’s variations, is what is in action with all of our problems.

When we feel depressed, our self-identity becomes fused with depression. We have an extremely difficult time objectifying or depersonalizing depression. We are depression. This sense of fusion is graded, in that there are degrees of fusion. When the degree of fusion is massive, we could say that we get “body and psyche snatched.” We can literally see no end and no alternative to our helplessness; in fact we become the very incarnation of hopelessness, and then it is not surprising that a depressed person will feel suicidal. Death is considered the only alternative to finding release from hopelessness and its identity of a hopeless self.
