"I was always treated as if I had insisted on being born in opposition to the dictates of reason, religion, and morality, and against the arguments of my best friends." ~ Pip's Lament "Great Expectations" (Chapter 4, pg. 25)
The Four Noble Truths with Stephen Batchelor, Christina Feldman, Akincano Weber, and John Peacock
Class begins September 4
In his first teaching, the Buddha pointed out the obvious: life is full of suffering. He then offered a roadmap to navigate this suffering, what we now know as "the four noble truths." In our latest online course, Buddhist leaders Stephen Batchelor, Christina Feldman, John Peacock, and Akincano Weber discuss new ways of understanding—and practicing—these pillars of the Buddhist path.
A Buddhist perspective can help us mediate our reaction to fear, says psychoanalyst and writer Pilar Jennings. In our newest issue, we feature a special section on Buddhist teachings and practices that act as fast-acting remedies for an emotion at the root of so much suffering.
