Keith Robinson | What can the Buddha in your Belly teach you about suffering, joy & purpose?

A Curious Yogi with Bobbi Paidel by Bobbi Paidel

Episode notes

“Spirituality exists in daily life. In the bowl of oatmeal, in the cup of tea.”

Today I’m joined by author, sommelier, and practicing Buddhist Keith Robinson. Since childhood, Crohn’s disease has been his life-long nemesis, companion, and teacher. Over his lifetime, Crohn’s brought him to the brink of death many times. Keith began to practice and study Nichiren Buddhist teachings at the age of 13.

This conversation is inspired by Keith’s recent memoir The Buddha in our Bellies, spanning continents and centuries in stories of identity and belonging — we ask ourselves where do we fit?

An illuminating and inspiring read, join Keith, his partner Yoshiko and the Buddha himself, to search for joy and purpose through suffering and despair. I highly recommend finding the book!
