Mindful Eating: Interview with Zen priest Susan O’Connell

Post written by Leo Babauta.

It was an honor to talk to Susan O’Connell, a Zen priest and vice president of the San Francisco Zen Center (and someone I consider a friend).

We talked about Zen food rituals, bringing ritual to your food eating and preparation (even shopping), how to deal with a wandering mind and the emotions that come up as you start mindful eating, eating mindfully during social occasions, and more. Enjoy!
