In this episode, I have a talk with Robert Beatty. Robert is a member of the first wave of Theravada Buddhist Teachers who brought the Dharma from Asia in the 1970’s. Robert founded the Portland Insight Meditation Community where he is the guiding teacher.

He has a Masters Degree in Environmental Studies from York University in Toronto, and Masters in Social Work from Portland State. Robert has extensive training in numerous Western therapies. 

This episode goes a bit deeper under our skin and proposes various questions like: Can we fully heal our trauma? What exactly is enlightenment? Do we need a guide for our practice? And what can we do about the climate crisis?
