Sylvia Boorstein: "Hope Is Alive"

Sylvia Boorstein: "Hope Is Alive"

“The minute you pay attention really fully to something, all of the confusion around the mind goes away.” — Sylvia Boorstein

We love this brief, joyful conversation between meditation teacher Sylvia Boorstein and 1440 co-founder Scott Kriens reflecting upon the magic that happens when we pay attention to, and appreciate, the small beautiful interactions of daily life.

Sylvia Boorstein, MSW, PhD, is the author of numerous books on Buddhist philosophy and meditation practice, including That’s Funny, You Don’t Look Buddhist: On Being a Faithful Jew and a Passionate Buddhist; It’s Easier Than You Think: The Buddhist Way to Happiness; and Happiness Is an Inside Job: Practicing for a Joyful Life. She is a founding teacher of Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California.

Sylvia has been teaching nationally and internationally since 1985. She is a frequent contributor to Lion’s Roar, a magazine of contemporary Buddhist thought. Her personal emphasis in teaching is the integration of mindfulness into everyday life.
