James Baraz

James Baraz is a wonderful meditation Buddhist teacher who has focused his life work on cultivating joy. I spent countless hours listening to his audio teachings on Dharma Seed and participated to his Awakening Joy online course at the beginning of my journey. His enthusiasm and knowledge helped me lay the foundation of my practice.
