Emotional Chaos to Clarity: How to Live More Skillfully, Make Better Decisions, and Find Purpose in Life
Despite our best-laid plans, life can often be difficult, disappointing, and stressful. Consequently, when things don't go right, we are often left in a state of emotional chaos, dealing with feelings like anger, anxiety, frustration, and doubt, which can cloud our perspective and negatively affect the way we live our lives. In this lecture, Phillip Moffitt shows us that we need not be at the mercy of our emotions. By cultivating a responsive mind rather than a reactive one, we can achieve a state of emotional clarity that allows us to live skillfully and act with wisdom even in the face of obstacles or unhappiness. Moffitt speaks from a perspective that is grounded in both Western psychology and Buddhist philosophy. He leads us on a path that takes us from being caught in old, self-defeating habits of mind to a place of clarity where we can act from the wisdom of our intentions, allowing us to move through life's challenges with a calm, clear mind and a peaceful, loving heart.
Former Esquire magazine CEO and editor-in-chief, Phillip Moffitt left his successful publishing career at the age of forty to embark on a path that led him to become a Buddhist meditation teacher and found the Life Balance Institute. He is co-guiding teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Northern California and the author of Dancing with Life: Buddhist Insights for Finding Meaning and Joy in Everyday Life. He is a former board member of both the C.G. Jung Foundation for Analytical Psychology, New York, and the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. He dedicated his new book Emotional Chaos to Clarity: How to Live More Skillfully, Make Better Decisions, and Find Purpose in Life to the renowned Jungian analyst Dr. Joseph Henderson. Central to Moffitt's teachings is an understanding that is shared by both Jungian psychology and Buddhist philosophy: the need for the ego to undergo a transformation from constant self-referencing to serving the greater purpose of the true self.
