Podcast Interview: Zuisei Goddard on Mindfulness

The term Mindfulness—as an approach to meditation or perhaps as a lifestyle choice—seems to be everywhere one turns these days. But it’s origins in the Buddhist canon and its explication by some of the great meditation masters of the ages, can lead us to equanimity, insight and, ultimately, to wisdom and compassion.
​In this March 2017 interview with Zuisei Goddard, Sensei, we talk about the misunderstandings and true potential of cultivating—and maintaining—awareness​. This conversation was recorded ahead of Zuisei’s April 2017 retreat, “Taming the Mind.”
