Heart Wisdom – Ep. 89 – Searching Inside Yourself w/ Chade-Meng Tan
In this podcast I’m joined by Chade-Meng Tan for an exploration of how spiritual practice and the search inside ourselves can guide us through our human predicament.
Chade-Meng Tan (Meng) is an award-winning engineer, international bestselling author, thought leader, movie producer, and philanthropist. Meng led the creation of a groundbreaking mindfulness-based emotional intelligence course at Google called Search Inside Yourself and is work has received eight nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The Buddha recognized something very important about what happens when we practice the teachings of the Dharma. The closer to the Dharma we get, the more our inherent suffering will diminish. We look at how we can begin searching for our suffering by searching inside ourselves.
“Once you are able to quiet the mind, you have a highly sustainable source of happiness. My friends, that is a life-changing insight. That suggests that happiness is not something we pursue, happiness is already there. Happiness is something we access, something we allow. Once you understand that, it changes everything in life. This is only the first step of practice – and it gets better.” – Chade-Meng Tan
