    Thanks again, Doug. I’ve enjoyed every episode in this series so far.

    Coincidentally, I watched this episode as a companion to reading Greg Lopez’s essay, comparing Buddhist and Stoic versions of “mindfulness”, where I think the TL;DR; is:

    While one pays attention to phenomenological experience in sati, one pays attention to more abstract concepts in prosoche. And while both touch on aspects of one’s present moment, neither sati nor prosoche are as explicitly tied up in that concept as modern definitions of mindfulness are.

    and We should feel free to adapt and change terms for our modern time as long as our words are clear and useful.

    Anyways, it’s good to see these traditions intersect in such a constructive way. Please keep up the good work!
