Thanissaro Bhikkhu, known to friends as Than Geoff, is in New York City to give a talk tonight at the Moving Body Resources center and was kind enough to stop by the Tricycle office.

The weather is cold and rainy here, with a bit of snow mixed in, so he’s used to better at his San Diego-area home of Metta Forest Monastery, where he is abbot.

We spoke with him about a wide range of topics, including the Buddhist take on forgiveness and reconciliation. He then led us in a 20-minute guided meditation. We’ll post the video of this next week. Than Geoff led one of our most popular Tricycle Retreats ever in January, which you can visit here.
