One of the country's most sought-after Buddhist teachers, Sylvia Boorstein says "You don't have to be a Buddhist to practice Buddhism. It's not about being a something--a Buddhist, a Jew or a Christian--it's about being more awake." Boorstein herself has found a deepening and enrichment of her Jewish faith through years of meditation practice. Combining spiritual wisdom with an infectious sense of humor, she cautions that while it is "easier than you think" to grasp the principles and practices of Buddhism, transformation is not something you can schedule on your lunch hour--it takes time and it takes work. Practicing mindfulness, however, is something you can do anywhere. (hosted by Michael Toms)
