Small Town Buddhist Preacher

By Tim Olmsted

Although Tim Olmsted looks like a preppy dad in a Ralph Lauren ad, he's actually a leading Buddhist teacher and President of the Pema Chödrön Foundation. For the premiere of Omega Institute's new podcast, Dropping In, Olmsted explores Siddhartha, our monkey mind, the four immeasurables of buddhist thought and how meditation can change our world.

This episode features audio recorded in Olmsted's Omega workshop woven together with an intimate conversation with longtime public radio journalist Karen Michel.

Join Michel for each episode of Dropping In as she sits down with the great thinkers, creative talent, and social visionaries who teach at Omega Institute. Together we explore the many ways to awaken the best in the human spirit.
