Date: Sunday, February 28, 2016 (14:00 -15:30)
Teacher : Ethan Nichtern
Price per person: $0.
Patron Price: $10.
Please join Shastri Ethan Nichtern for a lively talk on relationships, drawing from his new book The Road Home: A Contemporary Exploration of the Buddhist Path (FSG Northpoint, April 2015).
Do you feel at home right now? Or do you sense a hovering anxiety or uncertainty, an underlying unease that makes you feel just a bit uncomfortable, a bit distracted and disconnected from those around you?

In The Road Home, Shastri Nichtern investigates the journey each of us takes to find where we belong. Drawing from contemporary research on meditation and mindfulness and his experience as a Buddhist teacher and practitioner, he describes in fresh and deeply resonant terms the basic existential experience that gives rise to spiritual seeking—and also to its potentially dangerous counterpart, spiritual materialism. He also reveals how our individual quests for self-awareness ripple forward into relationships, communities, and society at large, and explains exactly how, by turning our awareness to what’s happening around us and inside us, we become able to enhance our sense of connection with others and, at the same time, change for the better our individual and collective patterns of greed, apathy, and inattention.
