Facing the Ego: A Guide to Getting Over Yourself

Ego is the one affliction we all share. Rooted in a belief in its own separateness, the ego all too often acts in a frightened, clumsy, and inefficient manner, whispering to us in our inner thoughts and driving a wedge between self and others. While the ego is a necessary construction, according to both Buddhism and Western psychotherapy, it can be treacherous. It is a mistake to give it too much power. This evening’s workshop—with talk, discussion, and meditation practice—will focus on bringing the ego out of its hiding places. Unless we face the ego head on, we can never find the relief and love we yearn for.

Mark’s new book, Advice Not Given: A Guide to Getting Over Yourself, will also be available for a book signing.
