Competition, Success and Failure
Does success in our daily lives translate into sustainable happiness? We think that success offers us more resources, more status and thus more opportunities for enjoyment. But often the striving that precedes success can blind us to more lasting causes of happiness: knowing oneself, being emotionally resilient and knowing what’s truly important in our heart of hearts. 

Sometimes we say these inner aspects are something that we’ll get around to, “but for now I need to earn more, develop more, achieve more, etc.” It’s as if we think those inner qualities are in competition with our quest for worldly success. And being unable to “make it” feels like failure. Let’s look at our minds and hearts and discover how they can bring lasting, true success by living fully.

We invite you to join us for our third annual Be Wise, Go Kind Online Retreat. Although we encourage you to join live, you can also view video recordings for 90 days after the end of the retreat. May all beings everywhere be happy and free of suffering.
