Choosing Wisdom: Discovering Joy in Difficult Truths

with Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, Emily McRae, Ph.D., Margaret Plews-Ogan, M.D., host Alejandro Chaoul-Reich, Ph.D.

A live online conversation with professor of philosophy Emily McRae, Ph.D.; physician and author Margaret Plews-Ogan, M.D.; Tibetan meditation master Geshe Tenzin Wangyal; and host Alejandro Chaoul-Reich, Ph.D.

“Truth is always joyful, though the journey to the truth may be painful,” writes Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche. Why do some people thrive when facing adversity while others struggle immensely? How can we use difficult challenges as a catalyst for positive transformation? This lively dialogue will explore the notions of wisdom and ignorance from the perspective of Tibetan Buddhist and Bön spirituality, alongside Western philosophical, physiological, psychological systems, looking at what these terms really mean and what they imply for the possibility of transforming difficult circumstances.
