Bodhipaksa: Starting Where We Are
Mitchell Clute, a producer at Sounds True, chose this week’s Producer’s Pick from the audio program Still the Mind with Scottish-born Buddhist teacher and author Bodhipaksa. In this selection, “Starting Where We Are,” Bodhipaksa helps us touch into a deeper sense of spacious awareness, identifying some of the stumbling blocks to beginning our meditation practice and sharing techniques for finding stillness and calm beneath the static in our minds. Mitchell loves Bodhipaksa’s down-to-earth approach to meditation practice—as well as the lovely cadence of Bodhipaksa’s voice.
