#242 A Buddhist Approach to Money Worries | Ethan Nichtern
Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris
Transcript

No matter what your economic situation is, you have likely experienced some money worries during this pandemic. I know I have— and I say that as someone who is in an extremely fortunate position. So many people have lost our businesses, lost our jobs, or had our salaries cut— or we are worried about one of these things happening to us. Given the massive insecurity and uncertainty abroad in the land, we wanted to explore a Buddhist approach to financial concerns. It’s not like the Buddha never said anything on this matter. He wasn’t expecting all meditators to live in caves with shaved heads. There’s a ton of useful stuff in Buddhism on the issue of money, and there are a lot of meditative techniques for handling our financial anxieties. So we brought on a great Buddhist teacher by the name of Ethan Nichtern. He’s been on the show before. He has written a few books, including one called The Road Home. He also hosts a podcast by the same name. We had a great chat, and I’m excited to bring it to you. So here we go: Ethan Nichtern.
