    For December:  Unmasking the Lords and Ladies of Materialism

    This is the time of year when, in the cover of the darkness of the season, emerges the colorful, clamorous, seductive lure of materialism.  It is everywhere. We might wonder, “What is this all about and how can I relate?” In this conversation we will explore the Buddhist approach to working with the Three Lords of Materialism in a way that could help us to mindfully boycott the materialistic excesses and celebrate and appreciate the heart of this season.
