What does it mean to find happiness? Noah Levine tried to find it — with motorcycles and leather jackets and drugs and more — only to discover that the true path to happiness is on the inside. Since then, he’s become one of the foremost instructors of mindfulness and meditation from the Buddhist perspective thanks to his own journey of peace, and he’s with us today to share more.
This week’s episode kicks off a series of conversations on relationships with a focus on our inner relationship, the one we have with ourselves. It’s the most important relationship when we think about our work in the Adult Chair and Noah’s perspective is so powerful and informative for our own journey.
