Turning Suffering & Happiness into Enlightenment

In this presentation we will look at the pearls of wisdom Buddhist Psychology may offer modern Psychology. We will draw from an essential, short text called Turning Suffering & Happiness into Enlightenment by the 19th century Buddhist Master Dodrupchen Jigme Tenpa Nyima. Preempting many of the current findings from modern Cognitive Psychology as its starting point, the text launches into a masterful exploration of how the very things we are averse or attached to can be used directly to unfold our hearts and minds with wisdom and compassion. The text summarizes in a comprehensive manner instructions for training and taming the mind.
