I speak with Jonathan Foust, a mindfulness and meditation teacher, with a speciality in body centred inquiry, which we also touch upon in our conversation.

Jonathan was born and raised on a Pennsylvania farm by quakers, and one day as a young child sitting under a tree, he had a strong mystical experience, which really set the course for the rest of his life. For example he lived at the Kripalu Yoga and meditation centre for 24 years.

Today Jonathan lives in Washington DC with his wife Tara Brach. Jonathan leads retreats, he teaches meditation teachers to be. And he basically works with all things to do with mindfulness and meditation.
