Austin Shambhala Meditation Center says
Please join Ethan Nichtern, widely considered one of the most accessible, innovative and experienced of the current generation of Buddhist teachers, for a lively talk and signing of his new book The Road Home: A Contemporary Exploration of the Buddhist Path.

Do you feel at home right now? Or do you sense a hovering anxiety or uncertainty, an underlying unease that makes you feel just a bit uncomfortable, a bit distracted and disconnected from those around you?

The Road HomeIn The Road Home, Ethan Nichtern investigates the journey each of us takes to find where we belong. Drawing from contemporary research on meditation and mindfulness and his experience as a Buddhist teacher and practitioner, Nichtern describes in fresh and deeply resonant terms the basic existential experience that gives rise to spiritual seeking—and also to its potentially dangerous counterpart, spiritual materialism. He reveals how our individual quests for self-awareness ripple forward into relationships, communities, and society at large. And he explains exactly how, by turning our awareness to what’s happening around us and inside us, we become able to enhance our sense of connection with others and, at the same time, change for the better our individual and collective patterns of greed, apathy, and inattention.

Ethan Nichtern is a senior teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition as well as the author of One City: A Declaration of Interdependence. He is also the founder of The Interdependence Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to secular Buddhist study and Transformational Activism. Nichtern has taught meditation and Buddhist studies classes and retreats across the United States since 2002.
