So much suffering in life can be traced back to thinking about things in only black and white terms – good versus evil, long versus short, male versus female, us versus them. Buddhism emphasises how thinking dualistically is the root cause of our suffering. How do we break free from the traps of rigid thinking and see the lighter side of life? Lama Choedak Rinpoche, will give practical teachings on how to remove ourselves from the clutches of dualistic thinking, and in doing so find the path to a more peaceful and harmonious way of living.
