About the event
We have all experienced success and failure, praise and blame, gain and loss. Our emotional connection to these extremes is undeniable, but we don’t always examine their long-term effects, nor the middle ground between them. Recognizing and understanding the shifting of our emotions by outward influences is something we can realize through insight, which allows us to experience and interact with the world in peaceful and purposeful ways.
Bhante Sujatha (he/him) is a 40-year Buddhist monk who teaches loving-kindness meditation worldwide. He simplifies core Buddhist teachings to make them practical and understandable for everyone. Bhante's goal is to add more love to the world and help people find peace through deep silence. He is the head monk of the Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple and Meditation Center in Woodstock, IL, and believes his purpose is to teach meditation and how to be happy.
