“It doesn’t matter so much what I think about something. It doesn’t matter what I believe about something. It matters what I do in relationship with that something.” - Claude AnShin Thomas
Today’s featured bestselling author is Purple Heart Vietnam Veteran, ordained Zen Buddhist monk, and the founder of the Zaltho Foundation, Claude AnShin Thomas. Claude and I have a deep chat about his journey of making peace with his unpeacefulness, his newest book, “Bringing Meditation to Life: 108 Teachings on the Path of Zen Practice” and more!!
Key Thing’s You’ll Learn:
Why we should take the “D” out of PTSD.
How Claude became a cycle breaker in his family.
How people commit suicide via an installment plan.
Why it pays to ask simple, straightforward questions.
What drew Claude to Buddhism and to become an ordained monk.
