Unhooking from Mental Afflictions

This week’s Dharma Talk is entitled Unhooking from Mental Afflictions by Lama Kathy Wesley.

Much of the suffering we experience in our lives come from habits we feel unable to break – mental afflictions such as anger, attachment, and bewilderment, and our unhelpful habitual responses to these negative emotions can make us feel discouraged and overwhelmed. But if we can recognize the common root to all of these negative emotions, we can begin to understand how to step back from them and forge a different path for ourselves.
