A Fresh Look at Discipline

Discipline is not a popular word. To most people, it feels like something imposed from the outside: an expectation others have of us or one we have internalized. This talk is about reframing the concept of “discipline” as the ability to hold an intention over time. Intention is most deeply rooted in satisfaction—not in willpower.

Welcome to a NEW SEASON of Zen Mind! New talks will be published bi-weekly on Wednesdays throughout the summer.
