#243 Can You Be OK With Uncertainty? I Jack Kornfield
Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris
Transcript

On today’s show… a bad news / good news situation. Let’s start with the bad news: human beings are not wired for uncertainty. It short circuits our system. The mind wants to plan, to work things out — and, in a pandemic, that is basically impossible. The good news: meditation is perfectly designed to take the edge off, if not more. Our guest this week is Jack Kornfield, a pioneering meditation teacher, prolific author, a former Buddhist monk, and a clinical psychologist. We talk about: how to use meditation to embrace uncertainty, the importance of getting in touch with your own “tainted glory,” and why we shouldn’t fear the schmaltz. (That last one was mostly for me.) Here we go: Jack Kornfield.
