I enjoyed hearing Noah Levine talk about Breaking the Addiction to the Mind last night. Good to see a young audience interested in meditation. I believe quite a few were also in recovery. Noah is well known for his book Dharma Punx and starting Against the Stream – a 501(c)(3) non-profit Buddhist Meditation Society, whose core mission is a commitment to social action. They have projects to feed the homeless, work with gang and prison populations and those in recovery centers. Their center in Santa Monica supports the dharma and practice both on and off the cushion.
