“Stop this wheel of suffering, I want to get off!” – The 12 Links of Interdependence, with Jaki Fisher

12 Links Jaki (final)

“I love this teaching. First, it’s based on a picture – and who doesn’t like visual teachings? … so much easier to absorb, and this one has some pretty unforgettable images – not for the fainthearted.

Secondly, the picture used to be placed in the front of Buddhist temples so that everyone could see and understand it, so it’s a teaching that is totally relevant for all of us, not some fascinating but esoteric thing.

And last, it gets into the nitty gritty of why we suffer and can’t seem to find lasting contentment and most importantly, exactly what we can do about it … and how we can stop this crazy wheel of discontentment.

So, in 4 Mondays, let’s dig into this topic and dig ourselves out of our unhealthy mental habits. See you there.”
