IE Radio Archives
I've been devouring the IE Radio archives on my way to/from work for the past 6 months or so, and I think I may be getting close to caught up. Got a few recommendations for you all if you haven't listened to them (or it's been a while since you first heard the interviews). I listened to the first on the way to work this morning and the second on the evening commute today. Each is just fascinating on its own merits as a subject matter, but they are also great examples of SM giving a real schooling in the Socratic method, which ultimately brings a greater understanding of the topic for everyone:
(1) 3/12/06: Sam Harris, The End of Faith
(2) 4/27/08: Jaysen Rand, Planet X (I'm going to have to try to square this guy with Sitchen, which I'm reading for the first time now)
Enjoy everyone, and namaste from the Midwest!
Doug Noll, Esq., July 8, 2007
Just listened to this on the way home today...Ha! There ARE peaceful lawyers out there! I try to be one and stay mindful that Gandhi, also, was a lawyer.
Noll is absolutely correct that we are trained to thrive in conflict and to be overly zealous, vigilant, suspicious. Like Noll, I also meditate daily every morning, and just that practice alone has transformed my practice and made me a better attorney (and yes, more peaceful).
Mediation and arbitration are used regularly now to resolve conflicts in my area of practice and others like family law (not my practice). I also appreciated that Brit acknowledged at the end of the interview that these listening mediation circles of dispute resolution have been and still are used in Native American cultures. When I was in law school, I did a research project on incorporating Native American peace practices in traditional western dispute resolution. Still try to keep those lessons in mind all these years later.
Namaste from the Midwest (and happy Halloween!),
