This week we are marking Earth Day - all week long! Check out our specially commissioned mini-series of podcasts: “Hair On Fire: Using the Threefold Way of Ethics, Meditation, and Wisdom to Turn Toward Climate Change”.

Rounding off a week of Earth Day podcasts we’re delighted to be joined by the series producer, Mary Salome, for a ‘making of’ special. Think of it as a kind of Director’s Commentary on a fascinating year-long journey in sound. 

We hear Mary’s own history with the issues around climate, and how her Buddhist experience gradually began to impact the ways she herself turned towards them. And how recording and editing the words of her friends – of people whose views she sometimes disagreed with – became a deepening practice of gratitude.
