“How to Move Beyond Blame, Live Your Highest Purpose and Become an Unstoppable Force for Good”, Episode #97
Today, I am joined by Dr. Fleet Maull to talk about Radical Responsibility, and how practicing Radical Responsibility can empower us to better co-create peace with others.
Fleet Maull, PhD is an author, meditation teacher, mindset coach, social entrepreneur and peacemaker who works at the intersection of personal and social transformation. He founded Prison Mindfulness Institute and National Prison Hospice Association, catalyzing two national movements, while serving a 14-year mandatory-minimum federal drug sentence, 1985 to 1999.
He is a Roshi (Zen master/senior teacher) in the Zen Peacemaker Community, a senior Dharma teacher in the Shambhala-Tibetan Buddhist tradition, and leads meditation retreats worldwide. He developed Neuro-Somatic Mindfulness or NSM, a deeply embodied, neuroscience and trauma informed approach to mindfulness & awareness meditation practice that facilitates self-healing, self-regulation, and awakening.
Dr. Maull is the author of Radical Responsibility: How to Move Beyond Blame, Live Your Highest Purpose and Become an Unstoppable Force for Good; Dharma in Hell: The Prison Writings of Fleet Maull, and the Resilient C.O.: Mindfulness-Based Wellness & Resiliency for Corrections Professionals.

The organization Fleet mentioned toward the end of our conversation is called Braver Angels. You can learn more about Braver Angels by visiting braverangels.org.
They are one of several organizations around the country who conduct dialogues between people with diverse perspectives and politics. Duncan Autrey & I discuss several of those organizations in Episodes # 93 & #94 of this podcast. I also provided the contact information for them in the show notes for those two episodes.
