How to Hold Steady When Our Buttons Get Pushed

with Ven. Thubten Semkye

Monday, December 6, 8:30-9:30 pm Central Time

(6:30-7:30 Pacific Time)

Believe it or not, whenever our “buttons” get pushed,  it is our anger and defensiveness as well as old habits of thinking that are the problem, not what others say or do.

Venerable Thubten Semkye shares the Buddha’s wise and practical advice on how to turn our attention to those buttons of reactivity within ourselves rather than blaming others for our pain.
