Desires, Emotions, and the Spiritual Path  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Since uncontrolled emotions and desires cloud our perception, spiritual traditions tend to regard them as a hindrance in the search for truth. Consequently, many religions and philosophies promote the development of detachment and equanimity. Our emotional dimension, however, is an important aspect of our being. Feelings such as love and compassion are recognized as essential for a spiritual life. This program will explore the role of emotion and desire in the spiritual path, as well as ways to deal with conflicting desires and negative emotions.
