Catching Z's: The Millennials Guide to Mindfulness

Jul 18, 2019

Stephan is a licensed psychotherapist as well as a spiritual teacher, and he has been a pioneer in the integration of Eastern wisdom and Western psychology and in the embodiment of awakened awareness in everyday life.  We had a wonderful, life-changing chat about many things but the direct approach to mindfulness he teaches is truly a life-changing practice, at least it was for me! We also talk about: 

  • Finding Zen as his first meditative practice
  • The idea of coming home and what it means to Stephan
  • What he felt he wasn’t getting from his zen practice and why this led him to get his masters in psychotherapy
  • Prescription use for mental health
  • Blending Mindfulness and Psychotherapy 
  • His new book "Beyond Mindfulness: The Direct Approach to Lasting Peace, Happiness, and Love"
  • Using the Direct Approach to Mindfulness
  • Defining awakening
  • The Myth of Striving
