Practicing on the Edge
How to Understand Selflessness—and Why It’s So Important
In today’s episode, Tricycle’s editor-in-chief James Shaheen sits down with Joseph Goldstein, cofounder and guiding teacher at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, who recently emerged from a 3-month silent retreat. They discuss the value and challenges of a long retreat, the wisdom of investigation and curiosity, and why we need to make more room for joy and humor on retreat and off. At the end of the conversation, Joseph leads a brief mindfulness meditation to re-ground ourselves in the present moment.
