Best Zen podcast around

Rev. Weik is the real deal.

Deep Wisdom, Friendly Style

Some contemporary Buddhist teachers emphasize the psychological benefits of practice. This teacher goes deeper, encouraging his audience to access and align themselves with a perfection beyond knowing.

He is super chill, too.
