Self-discipline and Meditation

Giovanni Dienstmann is an author and meditation teacher based in Sydney.  On this podcast, we talk about the different styles of meditation, the importance of training self-discipline and its relationship to meditation. We discuss the difference between mindfulness and meditation, great tips on how to develop and maintain a practice during this lockdown.
