In this episode, Emily Horn speaks with Insight meditation teacher and co-founder of the newly established Meditation Coalition of Los Angeles, JoAnna Hardy. In their conversation, they explore the origins, values, & current activities of this new experiment in community.

Here at Buddhist Geeks we see the Meditation Coalition as part of larger emerging trend of decentralizing dharma communities. Check out our episode on the SF Dharma Collective to hear another example of a sangha that is seeking to decentralize traditional power structures.

Quotes:

“What is this Dharma?” - Emily Horn

“Everybody we come into contact with, if we’re awake enough and really paying attention, whether we agree with them or not, we’re going to learn something from them.” - JoAnna Hardy
