Mindfulness, at its roots an originally Buddhist meditation technique, has exploded in popularity over the past decade. What was once exclusively a practice for Buddhists has now become a phenomenon in the West.
And while this is truly amazing, unfortunately, it's been spread mostly disconnected from it's original roots, so the accompanying wisdom that should guide the practice is unknown to many actively practicing it today.
This was necessary for it to spread to a larger audience, but unfortunate because without its supporting wisdom, while still beautiful and powerful, the practice is only a shadow of its true self.
The heart of Buddhist teachings for real-life from the host of the popular podcast, "Everyday Buddhism: Making Everyday Better." A gentle guide taking you deeper into the core teachings of the Buddha and bringing the Four Noble Truths and Eightfold Path alive through practices of Awareness, Acceptance, Appreciation, and Action.
