Meditation Podcast Episodes

Host Scott Snibbe and Producer Tara Anderson address the elephant in the room: COVID vaccination. This episode is not intended to convince anyone to think of the topic a certain way, but rather an exploration of how Buddhist teachings around compassion can meet such a challenging, contentious real-world topic. We cover how to manage with people who we disagree with, how to avoid so-called compassion fatigue, and how to (not) convince somebody to see things your way. Scott and Tara also share personal experiences such as what it's like growing up in an anti-vax household and making decisions around vaccinating young children.

Is enlightenment really possible for people like you and me? Do you lose yourself when you become enlightened? Are there people on earth who are enlightened right now? Buddhist scholar Dr. Jan Willis answers these questions and more as we explore what enlightenment (or awakening) really means.
