Podcast Series on Jack Kornfield’s Audiobook, Buddhism for Beginners


During the last 5 months, 3 of my dear friends and I have participated in a series of podcast episodes to unpack the non-religious application of teachings attributed to the Buddha in Jack Kornfield’s audiobook, Buddhism for Beginners.

The whole project has been very helpful and meaningful to me.

These principles–and discussing them with my friends–have helped me increase my capacity to deal with the messiness and ambiguity in our world today.

For those who might be interested, I wanted to share links Jack Kornfield’s audiobook as well to each of our 12 podcast episodes.

Below are links to each episode page, as well as links that will take you to either your Apple Podcast app or to your Podbean app to be able to listen in on our discussions.
