A Skeptic’s Path to Enlightenment brings the inner science of Buddhist philosophy and meditation to twenty-first century people hungry for happy, meaningful lives. In our weekly podcast, we share talks, guided meditations, and interviews exploring happiness, love, compassion, relationships, family, politics, technology, and work. Skeptic’s Path explores powerful "analytical meditation" techniques that use imagination, emotions, and critical inquiry to probe our inner and outer realities and expand our compassion based on the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. We expand on the popular mindfulness approach to meditation to help us better understand our minds from the inside out, building healthy mental habits that are the true causes of happiness.
