About this Episode

Krista Tippett is the thought-leading host of On Being - the Peabody Award-winning podcast about spirituality, science, healing, and the arts. Naropa was honored to host Ms. Tippett as our 2018 Commencement Speaker. This Mindful U Podcast interview takes us deeper into our intimate connection between Krista and the beloved Naropa community.

"I have been thinking a lot these days in this world we inhabit about how our traditions give us companions and teachers, and that it's one of the most important things. In Buddhism, there are the lineages of teachers that are just absolutely critical–living and dead–but in Christianity, there is the communion of saints and the cloud of witnesses. It’s the same idea - but my tradition hadn't given me that. So, I discovered a lot of depth. Theology has a whole different set of questions about our lives and about what happens between people in the world–about our conduct moment to moment. Looking at the world with the eyes of a journalist, but with a theological education, I eventually had this idea for a public radio show, which is how "On Being" started. A show in which the theological part of life would be addressed with intelligence, and that would also be attentive to spiritual depth and the intellectual content of our traditions." - Krista Tippett
