524. Challenges to Mindfulness – With Diana Winston

Mindfulness teacher Diana joins me to talk the worldly winds, how to choose meditation, mindfulness evidence base, are retreats a good fit, does meditation exclude people, tech and mindfulness, life integration, relational mindfulness, online retreats, and is mindfulness just “Buddhism Lite”. A robust but friendly confrontation.
