Stephen Batchelor on ‘Everyday Nirvana’

Update on Touching the Earth

Bill Gayner provides an update on Touching the Earth, a non-teacher-centric, democratic self-help community for cultivating mindfulness as an embodied social practice. Practices include meditation, journaling, sharing and exploring meditation experience in triads or dyads, and then gathering back in the larger group to reflect on the process.

How to stop bigotry
