Ron is a professor of management at San Francisco State University and a longtime practitioner of Zen Buddhism. We talk in this podcast about today’s popular mindfulness, traditional Buddhist mindfulness and the notion of ethics. We discuss religion, secularism and science, and end up with the revolutionary potential of the dharma as it enters a very different milieu – one that, unlike other cultural forms of Buddhism, is deeply fragmented and faced with unprecedented existential challenges.
