The Fake News of Your Own Mind with Jack Kornfield and Trudy Goodman

June 2, 2020

When you’re gripped by anxiety, fear, grief or dread, how do you escape? It can happen in the span of a few breaths, according to meditation experts Jack Kornfield and Trudy Goodman. They have helped thousands of people find their way out of a mental loop, by moving deeper into it. It’s a journey inward that reveals an important lesson for the architects of the attention economy: you cannot begin to build humane technology for billions of users until you pay careful attention to the course of your own wayward thoughts.


Trudy Goodman is a vipassana meditation teacher, co-founder of the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the founding teacher of InsightLA. 

Jack Kornfield is an author, Buddhist practitioner and co-founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, CA.
