"Mindfulness is that spacious attention that says, yes, this is what's here and who I am as the loving witness of it all.


Episode Summary: 'Love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at it’s best is love.'  Jack Kornfield, Author, Buddhist practitioner, Spirit Rock Meditation Center founding teacher, and one of the key teachers to introduce Buddhist mindfulness practice to the West, joins me this week to share his deep wisdom on how to heal from pain, trauma and addiction in life. Listen and learn how to heal yourself and the world through love, compassion, forgiveness and letting go.

  • How to navigate through an overwhelming impulse or addiction.
  • The role of plant medicine in spiritual development and the healing process.
