In this podcast, we explore the intersection of modern philosophy and classical meditation, in the context of how best to act in the world. Each weekly episode includes a short guided meditation we do together.
Community is a feature of the religious life. A bond of membership around the common purpose of living well with meaning exists between its members. We discuss the benefits of such a community, including how interaction in one is different from interacting with friends and family.
We contrast practical meditation from pure meditation as an exploration of voluntary action, discuss different conceptions of free will, and meditate together with a simple three-word instruction designed to aid us in grasping the experience of freedom.
