Good episode? Give it some love!
When we speak with teachers, they invariably tell us that they are suffering from stress and anxiety more than they ever have in the past. So we thought we’d take a look at one teacher’s explanation of why human beings suffer and what he believed could be done to alleviate it.

In this episode, we provide an overview of Buddha’s story and how and why he left his privileged life as an Indian prince to become the founder of Buddhism. Buddha believed that our insatiable desires are the root causes of our suffering and that following The Noble Eightfold Path could help us attain peace, balance and ultimately nirvana, which is the absence of suffering.

Can you utilize The Eightfold Path to help you understand and manage your own suffering and perhaps that of your students?
