Launch Party: Emptiness and Joyful Freedom
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We are delighted to hold a launch party in celebration of the new book by Greg Goode and Tomas Sander, Emptiness and Joyful Freedom. Please join us on Thursday, September 5, 7-9 p.m., for festivities and brief presentations from the book.
Tomas and Greg are long-time friends and supporters of Nalandabodhi New York. Their new book, which approaches the experience of emptiness from a Western perspective, has received glowing endorsements from Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche and Karl Brunnhölzl, among others.
Emptiness is the pinnacle of Buddhism’s understanding of reality. Studying emptiness uncovers an exhilarating freedom with nowhere to stand, while engendering a loving joy that engages the world. It is a powerful step towards experiencing the liberation Buddhist teachings offer.
This path-breaking book employs the emptiness teachings in a fresh, innovative way, making them more experientially accessible for today’s readers. Goode and Sander don’t rely solely on historical models and meditations. Instead, they have created over eighty original meditations on the emptiness of the self, issues in everyday life, and spiritual paths. These meditations are guided both by Buddhist insights and cutting-edge Western tools of inquiry, such as positive psychology, neuroscience, linguistic philosophy, deconstruction, and skepticism.
The result is a set of liberating and usable tools for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.
For a short period, the publisher is offering a discount to NBNY members for the e-book (only the e-book). Follow these links to the discounted price versions of Greg’s and Tomas’ splendid new book:
