Hosted by Jewel Heart

Searching for the Self
with Ven. Thubten Chodron

Wednesdays in April

4 pm Pacific Time
7 pm Eastern Time

on Zoom

Abbess teaches.
In this series of talks Ven. Chodron will explore emptiness, one of the most central teachings in Buddhism, drawing from the newest volume of the Library of Wisdom and Compassion series with the Dalai Lama.

“Searching for the Self leads us to delve deeply into the topic of the ultimate nature of reality, presenting it from a variety of approaches while focusing on identifying our erroneous views and directing us to the actual mode of existence of all persons and phenomena. Engaging in this investigation will challenge our deepest-held beliefs and uproot false ways of viewing ourselves and the world that are so habitual we don’t even notice them”.
