The Essence of Awakening

Why do we suffer? And how can we restructure our worldview in a way that aligns with the way things really are and leads to less dissatisfaction? Investigate these questions with John Dunne, who will lead us in deconstructing what we “know” to be true and learning how to cultivate the wisdom of selflessness, emptiness, and compassion.
