Noah Levine has come a long way: from troubled young man to well-known Buddhist teacher. His no-bull, direct approach — as manifested in his books, Dharma Punx and Against the Stream — has not only helped put meditation on the map for a new generation, but has been well-received by his elders in the teaching community.
In this Shambhala Sun Audio exclusive, re-presented here in light of our coverage of Buddhism’s next generation, Noah talks about the refreshingly organic way this all transpired, how his life has changed, and more. Click through to listen.
