WC #25 Christmas, Buddhism, and Brad Warner

This is the least Christmas-y episode I’ve ever done. But what the heck. I got to talk to a writer I’ve read for years, and I wasn’t letting it go to waste. Heh heh…

But to make it relevant, lots of people get sad around and after the holidays. Zen is my way of dealing with that. It’s my way of dealing with a lot of things. Yes, I meditate, but Zen meditation isn’t weird. It’s actually kinda boring, but that’s the point. Anyway, I’ve learned a lot about Zen from Brad, so this was awesome for me.

Brad Warner’s website: Hardcore Zen

The new book: Letters to a Dead Friend About Zen

Bumper music: “The First Nidana” by Ryan C. Hunt.
