    Episode 6: “Tongue-Kissing the Void.” (Or, “I Only Date Buddhists.”)

    Today’s topic: RELATIONSHIPS! As late celebrity monk Ajahn Chah once said, “The most convenient way to practice meditation is as a monastic, because monastics are celibate.” But I guess human relationships must be pretty good, because we just keep coming back for more. So if we can’t stop ourselves from such holy foolishness in this lifetime, maybe mindfulness can offer our hearts a leg-up? Our super-special guest is Devon Hase.
