    54 – The Spiritual Face of Unfettered Capitalism w/ Ronald Purser

    Sam speaks with professor Ronald Purser about the neoliberalism of mindfulness, the libertarianism of self-help, and the corporate piracy, cultural appropriation, exploitation, and racism of privatized mysticism and New Age.

He has written a new book called McMindfulness: How Mindfulness Became the New Capitalist Spirituality.
