New Huffington Post Live Segment “Be More Miserable”

Recently I was invited to participate in another Huffington Post Live segment, “Be More Miserable.” Interesting name for a webcast…..I was there to represent the perspective of artists, but all of us on the panel had Buddhist and meditation backgrounds so my dharma experience influenced my comments as well.  You can click on the photo to see the full segment or on the link here. huffpomis
