"There is an unbridgeable gap between desire and satisfaction, a gap that is responsible for both our civilization and our discontent." -Mark Epstein

Using Open to Desire by Buddhist Psychologist Mark Epstein, we will explore the mind-states of desire from various angles and perspectives. Often misunderstood and mistranslated as the cause of suffering, creating a healthy and sane relationship with desire, and creating emotion skills to navigate it well, are key to our human development, and any hope we may have for realizing the awakened state of mind.

Can't afford it? It is our full intention to accommodate the financial needs of anyone who has a genuine commitment to practice and study. Reduced Payment Options and Work-Study are always available. Please contact lani@theidproject.org to make alternative arrangements.
