Sylvia Boorstein: Embodying Buddhism (excerpt) — A Thinking Allowed DVD w/ Jeffrey Mishlove

NOTE: This is an excerpt from the two-part, 60-minute DVD.

Sylvia Boorstein presents the essence of the eightfold path and the four noble truths of Buddhism. She discusses Vipassana–or mindfulness–meditation which entails detaching from the thoughts, cravings and aversions that pass through the mind. Through this practice one gains insight into the impermanence of all mental states.

Sylvia Boorstein, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and Buddhist mediation teacher, is author of It is Easier Than You Think, Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There and Funny, You Don’t Look Buddhist.
