Catching Z's: The Millennials Guide to Mindfulness

May 4, 2020

Miles has been on a couple of year long retreats and has found each of his experiences only further fuels his curiosity and wonder about his mind and the minds of others.  He speaks very deeply about the precious inner workings of life backed by close to 10 years of devotion to these practices.  We talk about: 

  • Doing a 10 day vipassana reatreat prior to college
  • Traveling to thailand to be ordained as a monk and how this was a profound milestone in his life
  • Diving into a 2 month retreat with Alan Wallace after coming back from Thailand with the desire to keep his practice going
  • What is Goenka? 
  • How his practice continues to develop
  • How true curiosity has helped his practice
  • Ajahn Sucitto and how he taught Miles to pay attention to his intentions during meditation
  • The feeling of just scratching the surface that continues each day
  • Understanding everyone as individuals
  • Monasteries of the future and how those will look
  • Co-founding Dharma Gates 
  • Feelings about the current global pandemic
