of Wisconsin (1975). He has taught at both the University of Virginia

This week he discussed meditation, the present moment, in

the context of our spiritual and relational life. He draws

from the Judeo-Christian tradition of dialogue, as embodied by Martin

Buber, some of the recent work by psychoanalyst Daniel Stern, and his

own background as a psychotherapist and teacher of Buddhist meditation.
