Do you find it challenging dealing with the holidays and your family? If you experience "10,000 Joys and Sorrows" during the holiday season, Laura's talk might be helpful.

She speaks about the judging mind, comparing mind and habit patterns. Also included are your authentic self and the Dharma aspect of the book "The Underachiever's Manifesto" by Ray Bennett. 
Ryuko Laura Burges, a lay entrusted dharma teacher in the SotoZen tradition, teaches classes, lectures, and leads retreats in Northern California. A teacher of children for 35 years, she now mentors aspiring teachers. Laura co-founded the Sangha in Recovery Program at the San Francisco Zen Center and is the abiding teacher at Lenox House Meditation Group in Oakland. Shambhala Publishers will be offering two of her Buddhist children’s books next year, a collection of Jataka Tales reimagined for today’s readers, and a book about Zen Buddhism for kids. Laura is currently working on a book about Zen Buddhism for adults.
