Guided Buddhist meditation with Noah Levine

We are always taking refuge in or from something. Often, this occurs by seeking happiness in material and sensual pleasures. Those who have seen the truth that happiness will never come from outside oneself begin to seek a reliable, compassionate internal refuge. In Buddhism this is called taking refuge in our own potential for awakening. This presentation will be a guided mediation practice, focused on the core teachings of the Buddha’s Four Noble Truths.

Punks can be Buddhists, too: a conversation with Noah Levine

Noah has written multiple books and hosts a wildly popular spiritual gathering space in LA, "Against the Stream", but that's not where he started. His story dates back to starting to smoke marijuana at age 6, moving into more drugs, violence, and multiple suicide attempts, and ending in a padded detoxification cell in juvenile prison 11 years later. Today, Noah is a member of the Prison Dharma Network, working with juvenile and adult prison inmates and combining meditation techniques with psychotherapy. Join Audrey Buchanan as she digs into the honest, open and judgement-free journey of Noah Levine who has proven that there’s nothing more radical than the Buddha’s original teachings.
