We have had enough. We are depleted from overconsumption — technological, material, environmental, social, physical, and sexual. We feel defeated by climate change, political antagonism, social injustice, the pressure to be perfect, and the anxiety of being alive. We try spiritual this and that, but shopping for practices and performative spirituality drain us further. We are tired of the way we think, talk and live. We have had enough. We have had enough of ourselves.
Enter Disrupt Yourself — a book that is both a salve and a dare for our time. Using Buddhist teachings and lay precepts, it cuts through our confusion via the oft-forgotten foundational practice of ethics. Disrupt Yourself presents an everyday path that puts us in the right relationship with ourselves, each other, and our world through relevant renunciation around intoxicants, consumption, identity, communication, and intimacy. Through narrative, instruction and experiments, readers will uncover their inherent wisdom and its active expression of compassion. This transforms how we think, speak, listen, act, work, create, partner, parent, eat, shop, vote, govern, perform, protest, play, love, make love — all of it. We disrupt ourselves, and this disrupts our world. And the big reveal is how joyful and freeing this feels.
