“Embracing Emptiness”

Emptiness is a word that inspires a myriad of images and preconceptions. Our society often thinks of emptiness as a fearsome place; vacant and void. However, many Eastern religions find it to be a place of the most fertile soil and challenge this entirely Western view of what emptiness really means on a spiritual level.
On “Embracing Emptiness,”  Dr. Sheri Meyers explores this issue with renowned author, psychiatrist and devout Buddhist, Dr. Mark Epstein. Together they discuss such questions as:
  • What is the value of emptiness?
  • How can we not be so afraid of it?
  • Why is it integral in building a stronger spiritual connection?
  • Why has this important truth been forgotten in our Western culture?
  • What simple practices can a person do to begin to experience for themselves the Buddhist perspective on wholeness?

Learn to transform the fear of emptiness into the exhilaration of self-liberation!
