Video: “Running With the Mind of Meditation”

Sakyong Mipham — head of Shambhala, the international network of Buddhist meditation centers, and Shambhala Sun magazine columnist — has a new book, one that’s perhaps more personal than we often see from Buddhist teachers. It’s called Running With the Mind of Meditation: Lessons for Training Body and Mind, and what makes it so personal is that Sakyong Mipham is himself a runner — a marathoner, in fact — who gets out there not just for his body and mind, but to help bring awareness to important causes, like the ongoing struggles of Tibet. Here’s the book’s trailer:

Above all, though, this book is his informed take on how to integrate mindfulness and motion; you won’t have to be a runner to apply his teachings in your life.
