As we continue to navigate the turbulent events in our world, we need as many tools as possible to cope with our fear, sadness, frustration, stress and anger. The Buddha offered fundamental teachings on how we can work with suffering, whether it be small, big, temporary or chronic. 

He called it the Eightfold Path, which helps us overcome obstacles and brins a deep sense of satisfaction in our lives. The Buddha taught that when we develop the proper vision, attitude, speech, action, livelihood, effort awareness, and concentration, it brings us a greater sense of strength and courage. 

The Eightfold Path:
Right Vision
– helps counteract misconceptions about the nature of reality.

Right Attitude – protects from harmful thoughts towards others. 

Right Speech –  counters harsh & untrue words. 

Right Action – keeps us from harming others and ourselves.

Right Livelihood – protects from poor choices such as engaging in stealing or killing.

Right Effort – redirects our energy towards positive results.

Right Awarenessdispels wrong views about our body, speech, and mind

Right Concentration – protects from a lack of clarity.
