Mark has guided students on five continents as a corporate consultant, counselor, meditation teacher, and wilderness guide. He lives in Northern California. Visit him online at MarkColeman.org.

We talked about:

  • Mark's book, From Suffering to Peace, and what inspired him to write it.
  • How do he defines the word mindfulness.
  • What embodies awareness and how we can begin to develop it.
  • The hamster wheel of chasing pleasure and fleeing from pain and how we can avoid getting caught up in it.
  • How and why self-judgment is a modern epidemic (as he mentions in his book) and what can we do about it.
  • The quote he shared from seventeenth-century Zen master Bankei who said, “Don’t side with yourself.” and how he interprets it.
  • Dissatisfaction and how mindfulness can help us deal with it.
  • How he says in his book that letting go happens through the process of letting be - and how that works.
  • How mindfulness can help us manage triggering emotions.
  • And much more!
