The SUNY Purchase Contemplative Studies Department, The Aligned Center, and the SUNY Purchase Wellness Center welcome Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison!
Join for this special talk with Zen teacher and psychotherapist, Koshin Paley Ellison, as he discusses the concepts in his recent book, Wholehearted: Slow Down, Help Out, Wake Up.

Each of us has an enormous capacity for love—a deep well of attention and care that we can offer to ourselves and others. With guidance that is both simple and wholly transformative, Ellison shows us how to uncover it: pay attention, be of service, and be with others.

With this inspiring and down-to-earth book, drawn from the Zen precepts and illustrated with anecdotes from Koshin’s own life and practice, you’ll learn how to

  • explore and investigate with your own core values,
  • identify the mental habits that could be unconsciously hurting yourself and others, and
  • overcome isolation.

Each chapter closes with a contemplation to help integrate the teachings into your life.

This book is about getting back in touch with your values, so you can live energetically, authentically, and lovingly. It is an invitation to close the gaps we create between ourselves and others—to wake up to ourselves and the world around us.

“Koshin Paley Ellison’s teachings share the way forward into a path of connection, compassion, and intimacy.” – His Holiness The Dalai Lama
