Lecture by Joseph Goldstein

From the comments of a second grader, who just finished a mindfulness program in school – Mindfulness is the best thing that ever happened in my life to the Buddha’s declaration that mindfulness is the direct path to awakening, we are seeing a renaissance of interest in mindfulness as a path of balance and insight. This talk will explore how mindfulness offers a clear and straightforward way of understanding ourselves and the world around us.
