Wild Chickens & Petty Tyrants
Friday, April 9
12 - 1 p.m. (PT)/3 - 4 p.m. (ET)
A Live & Online Broadcast

For Beyond 50's "Personal Growth" talks, listen to an interview with Arnie Kozak, a psychologist who has studied with the Dalai Lama. He'll talk about original metaphors and creating your own, drawn from Buddhism to clarify mindfulness and encourage us to practice it even amid internal or external chaos. Wild chickens are a metaphor for people in our lives who are "loud" and not to let them compromise our calmness or interfere with our ability to practice mindfulness. Petty tyrants are persons who are consistently grumpy and dismissive of us, no matter what we do. They are a reminder to catch ourselves before mindlessly reacting and to not take ourselves too seriously.
