Skillful Means Podcast

Jennifer O'Sullivan & Sarah Jane Shangraw

Spiritual nourishment for yoga practitioners and teachers. Experienced teachers Jennifer O’Sullivan and Sarah Jane Shangraw discuss the ways in which the Buddhadharma, Taoism, and spiritual psychology enrich and expand a yoga practice.

Drawing on their own inquiries and inspired by their teachers — including Sarah and Ty Powers, Don and Amba Stapleton, Thich Nhat Hanh, Jack Kornfield, and Tara Brach — Jen and Sarah Jane discuss opportunities for awakening amidst challenging, 21st-century life. Along the way, they model a modern, spiritual friendship.
