Profound Practices for Modern Life

Jonathan Foust’s talks are entertaining, insightful and deeply moving. His immense knowledge and experiences combined with his gentle manner create a true gift of story telling that is incredibly powerful. He generously shares profound practices in the most thoughtful way. His ability to weave meditation or a “zen pop quiz” into his themed talks is transformational.
