Meditation Guru Tara Brach

Washington Post Reporter, Michelle Boorstein, profiles Buddhist meditation guru, Tara Brach, in this Washington Post report, that includes a photo gallery. Brach is one of the most popular meditation teachers in the Washington metropolitan area. Her talks are saved as pod-casts and downloaded almost 200,000 times each month. Some Buddhists critics think that she secularizes meditation too much in an effort to appeal to a broader audience. In any case, Brach seems to demonstrate the popularity of meditation.  Sean Corn is another teacher who was profiled on Krista Tippett's show, On Being, a couple of years ago.  She also shows the popularity of meditation and yoga.
