Taste of Buddhism with Scott Snibbe: “The ‘Universal’ Antidote to All Problems”
Sunday, November 24, 2019 , 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
During this week of Thanksgiving, we’ll look into a technique that transforms everyday pleasures and pains into profound meditations—from arguing with the family to stuffing oneself with a delicious meal. Life’s problems can make us feel sad, angry, or hopeless.
And life’s joys sometimes come with pain too. When we get what we want our ego can swell, feeling proud, jealous, or competitive; or we can feel guilty, undeserving of achievement, worrying about those lacking success and pleasure through no fault of their own. This session introduces the meditation technique of “universalization” to transform our everyday experiences of pleasure and pain into engines of love and compassion.
