‘Beyond Mindfulness’ Panel Discussion

On June 7, authors David McMahan, Gary Gach, Jack Petranker and Lisa Dale Miller presented at the Bay Area Book Festival on the topic, “Beyond Mindfulness”and the growing concern that a focus on “non-judgmental present awareness” can be used to support the status quo — a way to make things better instead of making things different. We each discussed the current wave of interest in mindfulness from our unique positions as scholar, teacher, poet and clinician. Each talk is wonderful and I encourage you to watch them all.

Gary Gach, “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Buddhism”
