Paige Polisner, Buddhist meditation teacher on the Upper East Side

The Wisdom of Letting Go

Fulfilling all Wishes through the Wisdom of Emptiness

Buddha’s profound teachings on the ultimate nature of reality can revolutionize our lives. By understanding that things only exist relative to the mind, we become free from a limited – and painful – view of our world and our place in it. The teachings on what Buddha called ’emptiness’ empower us to be able to fulfill our wishes, especially our deepest wishes for lasting happiness and a meaningful, beneficial life.

In these classes, Paige will demonstrate how this profound understanding can be integrated into our lives simply and directly, enabling us to let go fully of our unhappy thoughts and self-limiting tendencies.
