In Episode 46 of the Metta Hour Podcast, Sharon speaks with Roshi Joan Halifax about the idea of about meditation as way of “getting used to” the deepest places we already know in ourselves. We get a better understanding of the meaning of the word meditation and context for how it works in our lives. We learn to appreciate meditation as cultivation and the importance of getting used to it. Sharon is joined by Roshi Joan Halifax to take questions from the audience on patience, teaching others, and appreciating our contributions no matter how small they may be.
