Acceptance is not Complacency



In these uncertain times, our roles as individuals in the sweeping events washing over the world stage can feel deeply unclear, sometimes frightening and frequently overwhelming.

Buddhist teachings can offer insight into accepting “what is” while developing the capacity for equanimity and the courage for wise action. Join Ven Tenzin Chogkyi and Mathew Divaris in a lively conversation where we navigate the nuances of accepting where we are, while cultivating a wish for positive transformation and avoiding the traps of striving and complacency.
