Radically Happy: A User’s guide to the Mind

October 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Phakchok Rinpoche and Erric Solomon will introduce us to their new book,  Radically Happy: A User’s guide to the Mind


UPDATE: We have just learned that Phakchok Rinpoche will not be able to attend the talk in Yellow Springs this evening (10/29). Unfortunately a close family member of his is critically ill and in the hospital, thus Rinpoche needs to be present with them now. He was not able to attend the talks in San Francisco, Chicago and Michigan as well.  However, his coauthor Erric Solomon did give the Radically Happy talks in those cities and will also speak here in Yellow Springs t‌oni‌gh‌t. ‌ We look forward to seeing you at the talk.

East meets West in this fresh, modern take on a timeless challenge: how to find contentment and meaning in life.

In Radically Happy, a meditating Silicon Valley entrepreneur teams up with a young, insightful, and traditionally educated Tibetan Rinpoche. Together they present a path to radical happiness—a sense of well-being that you can access anytime but especially when life is challenging. Using mindfulness techniques and accessible meditations, personal stories and scientific studies, you’ll get to know your own mind and experience how a slight shift in your perspective can create a radical shift in your life.

Admission is free! This event is cosponsored by Antioch College, Gar Drolma Buddhist Center and Yellow Springs Dharma Center [visit website].
Location: Antioch College

Instructors

Phakchok Rinpoche is a premier example of a new generation of Tibetan Buddhist masters. He combines the most profound aspects of traditional wisdom teachings with his pithy, humorous observations of their ongoing relevance to the incredibly fast pace of modern urban life.Erric Solomon, once a Silicon Valley user-experience designer and now an author and innovative meditation teacher, his experience as a participant in the Logo Group at MIT’s Artificial Intelligence laboratory inspired a lifelong passion to explore the mind and how it functions.
