The Middle Way: Embracing a Balanced Life

Thursday, January 24, 7:00 p.m.

SanikarroThe Middle Way is a term the Buddha used to describe the Eightfold Path of practice that can release us from needless and neurotic suffering. Originally, "middle way" has meant staying away from opposites and extremes in which we lose balance, become mired, and end up suffering again and again. Let's ponder some of the opposites that pull on us like Scylla and Charybdis. How might we chart out life's courses such that the play of opposites remains a dance rather than a trap?

Santikaro is the founder of Liberation Park, a Buddhist retreat center in Wisconsin, where he teaches Buddhism and meditation with an emphasis on the early Pali sources. He was a Buddhist monk for 19 years and a disciple of the renowned Thai meditation master Buddhadasa Bhikkhu.
