Emotional Rescue – Public Talk with Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

PHILADELPHIA_ER Event Image_Email, Blog Post, Event Page (1)

In this public talk, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche will discuss his forthcoming book Emotional Rescue and Buddhist perspectives on working with emotions. It is only by learning to relate to our emotions skillfully that we benefit from their richness and glean wisdom, rather than letting them control us. Emotions get their power from a simple but deep-seated source: our lack of self-knowledge. When we bring awareness to our experience of emotions, something truly amazing happens—they lose their power to make us miserable. This talk is being co-hosted by the Temple University Department of Religion and is open to all and free of charge.

When: April 4th 5:30 – 7:00 PM

This event is being co-hosted by Temple University Department of Religion and is free of charge.
