I’m really enjoying this On Being podcast episode called Mirabai Bush — Search Inside Yourself: Contemplatuon in Life and Work. I cherish Krista Tippet’s excellent podcast On Being whenever I make enough time to listen; it so often feeds my soul.
Here’s a description of this episode:
She works at an emerging 21st century intersection of industry, social healing, and diverse contemplative practices. Raised Catholic with Joan of Arc as her hero, Mirabai Bush is one of the people who brought Buddhism to the West from India in the 1970s. She is called in to work with educators and judges, social activists and soldiers. She helped create Google’s popular employee program, Search Inside Yourself. Mirabai Bush’s life tells a fascinating narrative of our time: the rediscovery of contemplative practices, in many forms and from many traditions, in the secular thick of modern culture.
