We all suffer from painful emotions and negative mental states.

From panic attacks to intense dislike and anger, negative emotions can sometimes take over our lives and severely impede our happiness. In this short video Tibetan Buddhist master, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, speaks from his own experience on how to turn these mental states into support for our meditation practice.


About Chris Lemig

Chris Lemig isn't afraid of the dark. He dreams in full color and lives out loud. Sometimes, when he sees that your heart is broken, his heart breaks, too. But then he puts all the pieces back together and lets out a great, guffawing laugh that shakes the world to its bones. He loves you even though he's never met you and he wants you to know that you are brighter than the brightest guiding star. He is the author of The Narrow Way: A Memoir of Coming Out, Getting Clean and Finding Buddha.
