Diana Winston's Dharma Talks
My passions in the dharma are many, and only keep growing! Socially engaged Buddhism is a thread woven through many of my talks-- how can we end suffering both internally and externally? Having worked with teens and young adults for many years, some of the talks are geared to young people. My recent passion is how the dharma can be secularized and made accessible to all, regardless of background, this is my current work at the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA. Finally as a new-ish mom, I'm deeply inspired by the transformative power of daily life and family practice.
