Taped by the WGBH Forum Network, Mark Epstein visited the Harvard Book Store to discuss his book, The Trauma of Everyday Life.

Epstein talks about how he found Buddhism, and the links between practicing Buddhism and being a psychiatrist. He also explains why Buddhism alone can't cure the world's ills but that its focus on mindfulness can be an extraordinary experience for those suffering.

This talk took place on July 29, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.
