I created free audio recordings of the Pali Canon

The Pāli Canon contains scriptures from Theravada Buddhism. I find they can be difficult to get through when listening or reading, so I’ve composed some contextual music to accompany my readings. My hopes are that you find them more engaging than the bare text or readings and perhaps they may get you excited about reading more. I’ve listened to these recordings over and over during the production process, and found that they tend to “sink in” after multiple listens. So you might want to review them from time to time.

The direction of meditative research

This article is a great introduction to the history of our definitions of mindfulness and where our definition of mindfulness is going both theoretically and neurobiologically. I’m not going to dare to comment on it. But it’ll be a great intro for anyone who wants to dig in deeper to what’s going on in the brain during mindfullness AND what we really mean by mindfullness.
