    Cult Dynamics in Yoga and Buddhism: Recognition, Recovery, Resilience Fridays at 4pm ET May 1 – J In this webinar series, you will be engaged in active research and conversation aimed towards elevating critical thinking as a tool of spiritual inquiry, liberating modern Yoga and Buddhism from charismatic power dynamics and abuse, and building communities of sharing and resilience.   People read that and think, Buddhism teaches that life is always miserable.

      You can be both at the same time because Buddhism doesn't require any other belief or religion to be wrong in order for Buddhism to be right.

      According to a widespread view, Buddhism at its core isn’t so much a religion as it is a philosophy, way of life, or therapy based on a “science of the mind.” This view, which I call “Buddhist exceptionalism,” is a myth. Buddhist exceptionalism rests on mistaken ideas about Buddhism and equally mistaken ideas about religion and science.   To become a Buddhist, start by familiarizing yourself with the terminology and schools of thought associated with Buddhism, like Zen Buddhism, Pure Land Buddhism, and Esoteric Buddhism. Read books about Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism, and learn about foundational concepts like the Four Noble Truths.
