AWAKEN Season 2
Singer and songwriter Raveena Aurora hosts the second season of AWAKEN, which explores the transformative power of art. Using a Tibetan Buddhist mandala as a guide, scientists, Buddhist teachers, writers, artists, activists, and others share how they wrestle with five challenging emotions—anger, pride, attachment, envy, and ignorance—and what those feelings can teach us if we get curious.
Guests include writer adrienne maree brown, emotion scientist Tracy Dennis-Tiwary, psychiatrist Mark Epstein, artist and activist Madame Gandhi, Zen Buddhist priest Ruth Ozeki, scientist and Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard, celebrated Buddhist teacher Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, renowned chef Eric Ripert, and author and meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg.
