New Free Podcast Via Shambhala’s Meditation in The City: Self(Less) Promotion

| Tags: , , , ,
Check out Ethan's new lecture on the Shambhala Podcast, Self(less) Promotion." How does a person who believes in "egolessness" and the traps of self absorption find a way to mindfully promote his or her "self," to find voice in an egocentric world and find a way to promote good work he/she/they are doing? For anyone living in the world in 2015 and studying meditation, this is a key question. Check out what Ethan has to say about that, drawing on his book The Road Home: A Contemporary Exploration of the Buddhist Path and lots of ancient and not so ancient wisdom and thoughts on the matter.  This Shambhala podcast has lots of great teachers and lectures on it (Ethan is featured about once every four episodes), so you probably just subscribe via iTunes.  Enjoy!

This year, I will be having more conversations with incredible people for the Interdependence Project podcast at the intersection of mindfulness practice, dharma, and modern life. Recently, I was able to have an amazing interview with bestselling author and ABC News Anchor Dan Harris. Part one of The iTunes podcast link is here and the website link is here. You should just go ahead and subscribe to the podcast. :) Dan's book 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works is a hilarious and moving memoir of one skeptic's journey to mindfulness, and is among the best books I've read for cynics about dharma and meditation. I was able to sit down with Dan at IDP in the East Village a few months ago for a truly great dialogue on meditation, panic attacks, the mindfulness movement, and secular Buddhism. It was a really wonderful conversation. Please
