“Dzogchen in Everyday Life” – 7th Episode: Frustration and Anger (with changing conditions)

As a continuation of the series the “relief of emotions on a daily basis”, we are dedicating a special series on families of emotions directly linked to ongoing climate upheavals. In this seventh episode of the series “Dzogchen in Everyday Life”, our special guest is Mila Khyentse.

Host: Marie-Laure.


Few of us are really clear about our emotions, especially when they affect the deeper structures of our being, other species and the earth itself. Yet these emotions are increasingly present in our lives, and we feel often powerless about it. Is there anything we can do? Certainly, according to Mila Khyentse Rinpoche.


Dzogchen is a directly accessible tradition that can be practiced in a variety of ways in our daily lives, focusing on liberation from suffering and the means to achieve it. In this episode, we explore some aspects of frustration and anger in response to ecological upheaval, with the valuable insights of Mila Khyentse.
