In a clear talk based on her experiences of work in the civil service, as a mindfulness teacher and in the Buddhist world, Taramani introduces tips on working ethically, meaningfully and in a way that supports spiritual practice. She explains livelihood as a limb of the Eightfold Path, using ideas from Sangharakshita, Steve Jobs, and others.
