Wisdom Dharma Chats

With Host Daniel Aitken

Wisdom CEO and Publisher

Have you ever wished there was a talk show that featured all Buddhist guests?

Would you like to take part in intimate conversations with some of the most interesting minds in the Buddhist world? Would you like to be the first to hear what they’re currently working on, what their practice looks like, what they’re thinking about these days? Would you like the opportunity to ask them questions and receive their guidance on how to live a more inspired life?

 

If so, we’d like you to join us for Wisdom Dharma Chats. Taking place every week over Zoom, the Dharma Chats are a special live video version of the popular Wisdom Podcast (which has nearly 1 million downloads and counting). We think you’ll leave the Dharma Chats feeling energized and newly inspired to practice and follow your own spiritual path.

 

Each Wisdom Dharma Chat takes you on a fascinating exploration of Buddhism and meditation as our guests share stories and discuss life-changing practices, timeless philosophies, and new ways to think and live. These chats are followed by a Q&A session in which you can ask your own question to our guests. Episodes have featured guests like Robert Thurman, Ven. Robina Courtin, and Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. See below for this week’s special guest and to watch previous episodes!
