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.

Buddhist Studies Podcast
