Heroes on the – sometimes difficult – path of meditation: we desperately need them. In this podcast Joost and Eveline discuss who their Greatest Heroes are. Think of meditation teachers, role models, Buddhists or other people who have led the way of mindfulness and Buddhism, and can encourage others so beautifully during their own journey.

But what exactly is a hero? There is in any case little 'ego' in such a person. And much wisdom, or kindness, or service—or all of this. A hero embodies something of this, so does not stick to nice words, and by his or her example alone helps us to develop these kinds of qualities ourselves.

In this very personal podcast, Joost talks about his aunt and uncle, hippies who led a very different life than he knew from his youth, about inspiring teachers from Burma and the Netherlands. Eveline discusses her own heroes and heroines, including the Buddhist teacher Pema Chödrön. This wise and witty bestselling author recently came up with a new book (on her eightieth!) and Eveline and Joost are giving away five copies of it from the publisher! So listen for yourself, be inspired, and hear how you can qualify for this gift at the end.
