Here’s the second installment of our interview with meditation teacher, author, and Dharma Punx and Against the Stream founder Noah Levine.
Noah’s no-bull (but friendly) approach — as manifested in his books, in his teachings, and here, in conversation — has helped put meditation on the map for a new generation. And it’s been been well-received by his elders in the Buddhist teaching community, too.
In this Shambhala Sun Audio exclusive, Noah talks about — among other things — the challenges his growing community faces, and the value of working with young people in difficult circumstances.

In the third installment, Noah talks about how he deals with all the attention he gets, and why — despite or because of his surprising self-characterization as a bit of a “conservative” — we might just want to consider creating a more “American” Buddhism.
Thanks for listening to Shambhala Sun Audio.
