    Apr 11, 2012 | 29 min
    Buddhism asserts that we each have the potential to free ourselves from the prison of our problems. As practiced for more than twenty-six hundred years, the process involves working with, rather than against, our depression, anxiety, and compulsions. We do this by recognizing the habitual ways our minds perceive and react — the way they mislead. This Chi For Yourself interview with Karuna Cayton discusses transformation of intractable problems and the neutralization of suffering by cultivating a radically liberating self-understanding. Karuna Cayton is the author of "The Misleading Mind: How We Create Our Own Problems and How Buddhist Psychology Can Help Us Solve Them."
