Practical ethics for our times http://thubtenchodron.org/calendar?mc_id=2639 Sun, 26 Feb 2017 23:47:57 +0000 Heather Mack Duchscher Fri June 2: Evening talk, 7pm-9pm
Sat June 3: Daylong Workshop, 10am-12pm, 1:30pm-4pm

If you could talk to the President about how to run this country, what would you say? Second century Indian Buddhist philosopher Nagarjuna had the opportunity to teach a king, and his advice on how to govern with wisdom and compassion is recorded in his beautiful poem, A Precious Garland of Advice for a King, an inspiring early example of Buddhist advocacy on social policies.

As we move into increasingly turbulent times, Venerable Thubten Chodron draws from Nagarjuna's text to offer practical advice for all of us on how to put our values into action, to bring benefit to ourselves and others now and in the long-term. Holding a space for reflection and discussion over the weekend, she will teach from her latest book, Practical Ethics and Profound Emptiness: A Commentary on Nagarjuna's Precious Garland by Tibetan scholar Khensur Jampa Tegchok.

Join her for a public talk and daylong workshop to explore how to take your spiritual practice off the cushion, to create peace from within and without in a chaotic world.

What's the root of all our problems? We don't know who we are and how things actually exist. This is the very heart of the Buddha's teaching.

Ven. Thubten Chodron continues teaching from the book, How to See Yourself as You Really Are, by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and translated by Jeffrey Hopkins, to help us understand ourselves and our world from a more realistic—and loving—perspective. As these teachings delve into philosophy, some background in Buddhist thought is helpful, but not required. Ven. Chodron will begin teaching Chapter 15, Coming to a Conclusion.

People from all faiths and backgrounds can apply the principles explored on Sharing the Dharma Day to enhance their lives. Bring a vegetarian potluck dish (please no meat, eggs, garlic, onions, leeks or radishes) and come with an open mind. All are welcome!

How do we create the causes for a happy life? The Buddhist practice of mind training gives us the answer to these questions: it involves overcoming our self-centered attitude and replacing it with an attitude that cherishes others. This, in turn, leads us to act in ways that naturally lead away from suffering and toward happiness—in short, to create good karma.

Pomaia, Italy: Living with an Open Heart: Caring for Our Emotions http://thubtenchodron.org/calendar?mc_id=2652 Mon, 14 Nov 2016 02:27:46 +0000 Heather Mack Duchscher

All through the day, I me mine (…)
All through the night, I me mine (…)
All I can hear, I me mine (…)
Even those tears, I me mine (…)

… the Beatles sang back in the 70's, but these lyrics bear a timeless, universal truth. We experience life from a self-centered position and this is the source of all our sufferings. How can we overcome this condition, opening up our hearts to others and developing a feeling of connectedness, through lasting kindness and compassion? How can we liberate ourselves from this self-created “prison” and increase our inner freedom?

On April 25th, Italy's Liberation Day, we are grateful to have Venerable Thubten Chodron suggest some wise practical answers to us, in her profound, yet humorous style. During the workshop, she will be touching on how:

  • Our emotions (both positive and negative) impact our bodily and mental experience
  • Our self-centered attitude creates separation from others
  • A judging mind prevents us from opening our heart
  • We don't have to believe everything we think
  • Helping others means helping ourselves

Tutta la notte, Io me mio (…)
Tutto cìo che posso sentire, Io me mio (…)
Anche queste lacrime, Io me mio (…)

… I Beatles cantavano queste righe negli anni '70, ma in esse è racchiusa una verità universale e fuori dal tempo. Sperimentiamo la nostra vita da un punto di vista ego-centrico e questo è sorgente di tutte le nostre sofferenze.

Come possiamo superare questa condizione aprendo i nostri cuori agli altri e sviluppando un sentimento di unione, tramite la gentilezza e la compassione durevoli?

Come ci possiamo liberare da questa “prigione” che abbiamo creato e aumentare la nostra libertà interiore?

Il 25 Aprile, Festa della Liberazione, saremo immensamente grati di avere con noi la Venerabile Thubten Chodron, che ci suggerirà delle risposte sagge e pratiche, con uno stile originale - profondo e umoristico. Durante la conferenza, verranò toccati vari argomenti:

  • Le nostre emozioni (positive o negative) influenzano la nostra esperienza del corpo e della mente
  • La nostra attitudine ego-centrica crea separazione dagli altri
  • Una mente giudicante ci impedisce di aprire il nostro cuore
  • Non dobbiamo credere a tutto cìo che dice la nostra mente
  • Aiutare gli altri significa aiutare noi stessi

Pomaia, Italy: Living with an Open Heart: Caring for Our Emotions

All through the day, I me mine (…)
All through the night, I me mine (…)
All I can hear, I me mine (…)
Even those tears, I me mine (…)

… the Beatles sang back in the 70's, but these lyrics bear a timeless, universal truth. We experience life from a self-centered position and this is the source of all our sufferings. How can we overcome this condition, opening up our hearts to others and developing a feeling of connectedness, through lasting kindness and compassion? How can we liberate ourselves from this self-created “prison” and increase our inner freedom?

On April 25th, Italy's Liberation Day, we are grateful to have Venerable Thubten Chodron suggest some wise practical answers to us, in her profound, yet humorous style. During the workshop, she will be touching on how:

  • Our emotions (both positive and negative) impact our bodily and mental experience
  • Our self-centered attitude creates separation from others
  • A judging mind prevents us from opening our heart
  • We don't have to believe everything we think
  • Helping others means helping ourselves

Pomaia, Italy: Disarming the Mind: Working with Anger for a Happier Life," http://thubtenchodron.org/calendar?mc_id=2648 Mon, 14 Nov 2016 02:18:22 +0000 Heather Mack Duchscher Can we use the upsetting emotions and difficult situations in our life as growth material to improve the quality of our lives and of those around us? Can we take disturbing feelings and transform them into causes of happiness? YES, WE CAN! It requires a lot of courage and determination, but this delicate alchemy is possible, Buddhists and scientists alike reassure us.

When we’re overwhelmed by negative emotions, such as anger, we lose control of our bodies, speech, and minds. These disturbing states of mind have the power to distort reality and draw us into harmful behavior towards ourselves and towards others, creating suffering for ourselves and those around us. Venerable Thubten Chodron guides us into shining the light of awareness on the subject of anger, familiarizing ourselves with this mental affliction, the way it manifests in our lives, and the remedies that we can skillfully apply to cure our minds from it. We are invited to take responsibility for our mental attitudes, overcoming the habit of blaming others and victimizing ourselves, and to develop a steady and strong mind, undisturbed by criticism, pain or any unpleasant circumstance. So that we can grow in love, compassion and tolerance, be happier and make the world a happier place to live in.

This residential retreat with Ven. Thubten Chodron, begins Friday evening at 8:30 pm and ends Tuesday at 12:30 pm. See detailed retreat schedule. For more information contact segreteria [at] iltk [dot] it

Possiamo usare le emozioni spiacevoli e le situazioni difficili come materiale per crescere e migliorare la qualità delle nostre vite e di coloro che ci circondano?

Possiamo prendere i sentimenti disturbanti e trasformarli in cause per la felicità?

SÌ, POSSIAMO FARLO!

Ci vuole molto coraggio e determinazione ma questa delicata alchimia è possibile, il Buddhismo e la scienza occidentale ci rassicura su questo.

Quando siamo soprafatti dalle emozioni negative, come la rabbia, perdiamo il controllo del nostro corpo, della nostra parola e della nostra mente. Questi stati mentali disturbanti hanno il potere di distorcere la realtà e di trascinarci in comportamenti dannosi, creando sofferenza per noi stessi e per gli altri.

La Venerabile Thubten Chodron ci guiderà per far brillare la luce della consapevolezza sul tema della rabbia, rendendoci familiari con questa afflizione mentale, con il modo in cui essa si manifesta e con i rimedi che abilmente possiamo applicare per curare questo tipo di mente.

Saremo invitati ad assumerci la responsabilità delle nostre attitudini mentali, superando l'abitudine di incolpare gli altri e di vittimizzare noi stessi, per sviluppare una mente equilibrata e forte, non disturbata dalle critiche, dal dolore o da qualsiasi altra circostanza spiacevole.

Con questi strumenti avremo un metodo sempre con noi per accrescere l'amore, la compassione e la tolleranza, per essere pìu felici e rendere il mondo un luogo migliore in cui vivere.
