Larry Rosenberg: Long Path Home

As we witness a consciousness revolution around the world, the practice of mindfulness meditation is reaching nearly every facet of our society; a major role that has been played by American Buddhist teacher, Larry Rosenberg. This biographical portrait recounts the remarkable story of how his life-long search for self-discovery has helped thousands find freedom from suffering. Through his intimate retelling and unique humor, we learn how his life-long friend, Jon Kabat-Zinn, introduced him to Vipasanna, ultimately leading to the creation of one of the nation’s most vibrant contemplative centers for meditation learning and practice.
