Emotional Rescue

A Sneak Peak of What to Expect from Rinpoche’s New Book, Emotional Rescue

 “The purpose of this book is to introduce certain methods for working with disturbing emotions so that gradually, step by step, we can move from being victims to partners to creative collaborators with these profound energies. When we bring awareness to our emotions, something truly amazing happens. They lose their power to make us miserable.”    ––Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

Only by learning to relate to our emotions skillfully can we benefit from their richness and gain wisdom, instead of letting them control us. When we bring awareness to our emotions, something truly amazing happens—they lose their power to make us miserable.
