American Buddhism: part one

In our conversation today, we discuss the difficulty of talking about the large, diverse set of practice traditions collectively known as “American Buddhism.” How can you talk meaningfully about such a wide array of Buddhist communities, beliefs, and practices? And how do we engage non-Buddhists and those new on the path who may have their own ideas about Buddhism, correct or a little off the path, in a deep and compassionate way?

Part two of this conversation will be posted shortly, so please check back soon.

Thanks for listening!
