  • Avoiding Negativity in the Groundhog Season

    A few mornings ago, I work up to an article on Elephant Journal about what is know as the Buddhist Dön season (vowel pronounced like “could”). In a nutshell, the ten days leading up to the Tibetan New Year (this year is February 9th) are believed to enhance our awareness of daily obstacles and provoke frustration with our current situation. Whether you believe in this type of thing or not, it’s hard to ignore the how many people feel during this part of the winter — sick of the cold, groundhog about to predict six more weeks of winter, and probably a large dose of cabin fever.
