"Mindfulness, the aware, balanced acceptance of present experience, is at the heart of what the Buddha taught.”
—Sylvia Boorstein

Charles Fisher

Charlie Fisher was a professor of sociology at Brandeis University in Massachusetts for 30 years. Among other subjects, he taught his students to meditate as part of the regular curriculum. From the mid 1970s through the mid 1990s Charlie was associated with the Insight Meditation Society. In 2007 he published a book on nature and meditation entitled Dismantling Discontent: Buddha's Way Through Darwin's World. An inadvertent heir to the Thai Forest Tradition, Charlie has spent long periods meditating in the woods with wild beings. Charlie lives in Woodacre, occasionally teaches meditation, and assists in natural history field trips.
