Joey Weber is the perfect next guest to explore the topic of mindfulness and meditation with. This time we dig a bit deeper to understand what mindfulness is on its own and answer the question Joey asked in his research: “is mindfulness enough?” Joey is someone who has spent his early years in a Tibetan monastic community and, as he says himself, to some extent he has practiced meditation for all his life. Joey also holds a PhD in Psychology and in his 6 year research he explored the barriers to equanimity bringing the mystical side of meditation into the more practical world of science. His book 'Why Mindfulness is not Enough: Unlocking Compassion with Equanimity' is available on Joey’s website, on Amazon and in selected book stores across the UK.
In this episode we speak about Joey’s personal journey into the academic world, I learn more about his research and findings, we discuss the place of mindfulness in the modern world and Joey explains how to take our meditation practices to the next, deeper connected and more compassionate level.
