Awake in the World Podcast 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 was an internationally-recognized Buddhist teacher, author, host of the Awake in the World podcast, and mental health advocate.

So many gifts

I have listened to these talks for years. I feel deeply grateful that they are shared online. There are a wide range of recordings, including led meditations which are wonderful if you are new to sitting practice or need some refinements.

The lectures that deal with psychology/ mental states are absolutely transformative for people who have struggled with difficult experiences and feel constrained, rather than supported, by standard congnitive interpretations of emotion states. If you are a care practitioner, even in the broadest sense, these podcasts are invaluable.

Next, some podcasts follow a Buddhist text, a Koan, a passage from western philosophy. Even without being physically present, it is easy to follow along. I have studied the texts alongside the recordings, or sometimes just listened. Favorites are “Master Ma is Unwell” and “Bring me something that isn’t medicine”. These kinds of episodes sit with you for some time. I find the ideas resurface in my daily life and teach me to be more fully in/of the world. Truly gifts!

For yoga teachers, there are excellent episodes on the yoga sutra, yoga philosophy and a breakdown on the ashtanga invocation. Very useful for personal study!


The Dharma talks are illuminating. The integration of psychology, poetry, Buddhism, and real life experience is unmatched. Michael Stone gives us a modern and literary take on the great thinkers in Buddhism and enhances these ideas for modern times. In addition, Michael's goal is to make us our own teacher,

If you have ever suffered from grief, depression, regret, rage, or jealousy, these podcast gives you greater insight in to how to cope, how to find your own voice in facing daily struggles, as well as give insight into the larger picture of your life. They are essential to my well being.
