On this week's episode of The Wright Show, Robert Wright speaks with Buddhist author and teacher Shinzen Young about meditation as pumping iron, synthesizing Buddhism and Western science, technologically-enhanced enlightenment, and a whole lot more. Cool conversation between two interesting scholars.
Wright is the author of several excellent books, including The Evolution of God (2010), Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny (2001), and The Moral Animal: Why We Are, the Way We Are: The New Science of Evolutionary Psychology (1995).
Shinzen Young has recorded a lot of his teachings through Sounds True, including Break Through Difficult Emotions: How to Transform Painful Feelings with Mindfulness Meditation, Working with Thoughts, and The Science of Enlightenment: Teachings and Meditations for Awakening Through Self-Investigation (CEUs available for this course).
