Inner Life at Work: Tami Simon on Business, Meditation, and Technology

From NPR's On Being with Krista Tippett, this is a nice interview with Sounds True founder and CEO, Tami Simon. Sounds True is the single best resource we have for audio teachings (as well as books and some video sessions) by the world's leading spiritual teachers from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines.

Tami Simon produced the Kosmic Consciousness course with Ken Wilber many years ago, which was my introduction to her as an interviewer and Sounds True as a company. More recent offerings include Robert Augustus Masters's Knowing Your Shadow and Pema Chodron's How to Meditate, among many other excellent offerings.

Not only do I love Sounds True and what it offers, but having Spoken to Tami a couple of times, she is someone whose vision and integrity I respect enormously.

You might call Tami Simon a spiritual entrepreneur. She's built a successful multimedia publishing company with a mission to disseminate "spiritual wisdom" by diverse teachers and thinkers like Pema Chödrön and Eckhart Tolle, Daniel Goleman and Brené Brown. She offers compelling lessons on joining inner life with life in the workplace — and advice on spiritual practice with a mobile device.
