Understanding our jealousy and envy

This four-part video retreat, offered by Tricycle, explores the emotions of jealousy and envy.

Tricycle offers a series of online video retreats exploring Buddhist topics. Venerable Thubten Chodron leads the current four-part retreat, which delves into the complex emotions of envy and jealousy.

The retreat, “Recognizing and Transforming Jealousy and Envy”, is hosted on Tricycle‘s website.

The description from Tricycle:

We all know what the Buddha said about anger. But what did he say about jealousy and envy? These two complex emotions are simultaneously ubiquitous and invisible: they frequently visit us, but we are loath to admit to feeling them. Who better than the Venerable Thubten Chodron, a longtime Tibetan Buddhist nun, to help ease us out of shame and into recognition with her characteristic warmth and humor? Offering more than mere sympathy, she shows us how jealousy and envy quietly feed off our attachments and how we can ultimately overcome them.
