What's offered by the Northwest Vipassana Center

The Northwest Vipassana Center - Dhamma Kunja - celebrated its 20th anniversary last month. Located in rural Washington, just 90 miles north of Portland, the center has offered dozens of 10-day meditation courses on a donation-only basis every year, and shorter courses for children and teen-agers. Vipassana meditation, as taught by S.N. Goenka, aims at self-transformation and the healing of suffering through self-observation. To produce this month's show, Stephanie Potter spoke with four "old students" who share their experiences with the practice.

 Hosted by Joe Uris.  Abe Proctor is on Vacation.

Joe has noticed that all of the Republican Hopefulls for the 2012 Presidential Elections have Platforms draped in prayer flags, but not much else.  They all seem to be highly religious, and defer all talk of actual political issues to Religious Values, instead.  Is this how we want to run our country?
