Awake in the World Podcast with Michael Stone is a library of talks on a wide-range of topics, including bringing mindfulness and meditation practice into daily life; personal and community issues regarding mental health; and social change. The podcasts are recorded at live events so you might hear coughing, airplanes, cars, sirens, laughter, and peoples’ questions—all part of the intimate experience. Michael Stone is often described as a cross between a spiritual teacher and public intellectual. His ability to integrate traditional contemplative teachings from his studies in yoga, Zen, and Vipassana, with the insights of Western psychology, gives him a unique voice for a new generation of students integrating mindfulness with the demands of their busy lives. He is the author of numerous books, he teaches internationally and lives in Canada.

Customer Reviews

audience is too distracting

There's something unattractive about being in a roomful of people that agree with you. The nervous laughter from those healing arts folks has a tone that you'll hear at any given temple or retreat center! If over-compensation has ever been audible it's in this laughter. And it's like hearing a mind becoming more narrow...which is tragically ironic. Groucho Marx said, "I don't want to belong to any club that would have me as a member." But yeah, this is all cynical/negative. I know, it's tough. But the privilege of the new age archetypes is not being addressed. Nothing quite like a bunch of self absorbed individuals performing a group hug. Yep, I have plenty to deal with. But I do care : )

Quite Good, Actually

The talks are well thought out, honest and free of the over abundance of esoteric Buddhist terms and phrases sometimes encountered in retreats. I enjoy this podcast and look forward to new installments.

Great Buddhist podcast

Love this podcast. It's very accessible for beginning Buddhist practice. I feel much more peaceful after listening to it!
