ZfEL Ep. 2: How to Live as If You're Going to Die

ZfEL Podcast EP2 (1)

This week's episode is all about realizing the beauty of this life and cultivating a deep sense of gratitude and appreciation.

I lead off with a very interesting story about a modern-day yogi, a Tibetan Buddhist teacher by the name of Mingyur Rinpoche, and we talk about a simple daily practice suggested by the Buddha which can help us deepen our appreciation for life by bringing us face-to-face with the truth of impermanence.

I hope you enjoy this 2nd episode!
