Waking up is hard to do

"If it wasn't, we wouldn't be here", says Ken in one of his retreat recordings. Ken's ability to address the practical everyday concerns of his students with insight and kindness is quite remarkable. A guiding and powerful voice of reason in buddhist practice. Deconstruct the reactive mind incrementally through the pragmatism of a truly western Buddhist practice. Ordered his book after a single podcast, you will too.

Good for everyone, not just Buddists

I listened to most of the podcasts on releasing emotional reactions while walking in nature. What a profound experience. I'm not a Buddist, and I don't plan to practice meditation in any formal way. But I've found many of his insights into human nature and the process of living to be, again, profound. He speaks in a kind, slow manner that respects and allows the wheels to turn in your mind as you listen, so that the new things you are learning can resonate within you and not just fly past. The sound quality could be better at times, and the question and answer sessions are almost useless to the podcast listener. Try it out when you have some quiet time to listen. It won't work if you're busy with other things.

Couldn't listen to it

I tried one podcast. The talk was academic-sounding with not a little pretension, and when he responded condescendingly to a comment from a student, I just couldn't keep listening. I'd suggest Zencast, Audio Dharma or Deer Park Monastery ones instead.
