Joe Clement talks with local activist and meditator, Guy Berliner*, about the use and abuse of mindfulness in corporate capitalist society. Does mindfulness promulgated by institutions that exploit and dominate create more attachment to the system that is driving considerable suffering? Does the experience of peace and self-acceptance mindfulness can bring have implications for solving problems that require social and political solutions?

 

*Guy was on the show before talking with Bill about organizing in his neighborhood around industrial air pollution.
