For the 85th episode of the Metta Hour Podcast, Sharon speaks with colleague Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D.
Elisha Goldstein is a speaker and author who synthesizes traditional psychotherapy with a progressive integration of mindfulness and is the co-founder of The Center for Mindful Living in Los Angeles, CA. Elisha and Sharon discuss what brought Elisha to the practice of meditation, and how that has evolved into his work life today. They speak about the benefits of integrating mindfulness with psychotherapy, the science of habit formation, dynamics of self-worth in relation to compassion and self-love, and the relationship between the nervous system and the journey of spiritual awakening. The conversation closes with Elisha leading a guided meditation on compassionate action.
