Play • 1 hr 3 min

How did it come to be  that we, as individuals and as an entire species, have traded our innate capacity for joy, happiness, and connection for the survival system we call "conditioned mind"?  What are the origins of the separate self? And what might we learn from our origins about the future of humanity? Check out this podcast for an exploration of these and other related topics.

David McKay entered a Zen Buddhist monastery at the age of twenty-nine and spent the next eighteen years training there in silence. Over time he became a skilled facilitator and counselor, offering retreats and workshops at the monastery and across the country. David left the monastery in the fall of 2014 to further explore life and spiritual practice back in the world. He currently supports awareness and personal transformation in the form of retreats, workshops, and one-on-one spiritual mentoring.
