When Bad Lands: How not to numb out, freak out, or bottom out–Buddhist Style
by Alan Anderson
Change sometimes wells up from within and we enter gracefully. At other times, it is utterly choiceless as the past, present and future get burned up in the most unforgiving flames.
For some, the spiritual path provides support for this change; but for others it smothers new possibilities. That’s because the paths of mindfulness and meditation don’t necessarily uncover what we most need to change.
“When Bad Lands” reveals a deeper journey—one that helps us overcome self-deception and other challenges with humility, clarity and humor.
