The “mad mind” can be a raw and persistent form of suffering in daily life, blocking our experiences of intimacy and freedom. In this online video retreat, insight meditation teacher Ruth King will show you how to recognize the mad mind and soften its grip with the fundamental practices of lovingkindness and compassion, as well as how to use the intensity of strong emotions like rage in order to get in touch with the seeds of radiance and joy.
