Great interview overall. Especially appreciated teasing out of how interest in meditation is now embedded in our major institutions of higher learning. Also, how meditation is becoming a part of mainstream health care.

Wow, thank you Tricycle for making this available. I like the point Vincent Horn made, more than once, about not separating his studies from the Buddhist traditional meditation.
