Episode 337 :: Shaila Catherine :: Beyond Distraction

Shaila Catherine

Shaila Catherine returns to the podcast to speak about her new book Beyond Distraction: Five Practical Ways to Focus the Mind.

Hi, everyone. You may have noticed this podcast has been on pause. After ten years of weekly episodes, this or Present Moment Mindfulness, I needed a break to shift my focus to teaching. There will be occasional releases like today’s new episode, and I’m very happy to break the silence with Shaila Catherine. Shaila has practiced meditation since 1980, studied with founders of Western insight meditation centers, and accumulated more than nine years of silent retreat experience. Shaila loves deep meditation, and appreciates a variety of approaches to exploring, developing, and liberating the mind.

So, sit back, relax, and have a nice Chai Honey tea.
