Wisdom with Wangmo Podcast
Dharma College, based in Berkeley, California, has started a series of podcasts with executive director Wangmo Dixey. The focus of this podcast series, called Wisdom with Wangmo, is to explore how to bring Dharma into our daily life. Wangmo has conversations with practitioners along the path who can speak directly from their own experience, hoping to take the Buddha off the meditation cushion and bring the teachings into practical experience. The idea is to explore with Buddhist practitioners, what it is like to live with wisdom teachings and how their lives have been transformed through the Dharma.
Since growing up with the Buddha Dharma, Wangmo has been interested in meeting practitioners along the path, and understanding how they got on the path. This podcast is dedicated to re-imagining wisdom. At Dharma College, our mission is to translate ancient wisdom into everyday life. Using whatever circumstances we encounter as an opportunity for growth, we begin to manifest the extraordinary potential of being these uncertain times provide perfect conditions to discover what is holding us back from the ever available freedom.
Death Dhamma Podcast
Buddhistdoor Global contributor Margaret Maloni, author of the Death Dhamma column, has launched the The Death Dhamma Podcast, which offers open and honest discussions with wise and skillful teachers about their experiences with life, death, and Buddhism.
Everyone has a story, a perspective, and a valuable lesson to share. Embrace death, live a full life and learn to love impermanence because nobody gets out of this alive. If you wonder how others on the path have dealt with death and dying and grief, be sure to listen in.
Mind & Life Podcast
Hosted by Wendy Hasenkamp, neuroscientist and science director at the Mind & Life Institute, the Mind & Life Podcast addresses fundamental questions that arise through bridging science and contemplative wisdom.
How do we understand our minds? What are the mental patterns that shape our experience—how are those patterns created, maintained, and changed? In what ways can contemplative practices such as meditation help us work with our minds? And what are the potential benefits of these practices for individuals and society?
Wendy investigates these complex questions with leading researchers, thinkers, and on-the-ground practitioners, moving us toward a deeper understanding of ourselves and our world.
