WORDS ON A WIRE: Jennifer Howd

-ORIGINALLY AIRED JANUARY 14, 2018-

Jennifer Howd has been building a mindfulness practice for a few years before taking on the challenge of her first nine-day silent meditation retreat. In her debut memoir, Sit, Walk, Don't Talk: How I Survived A Silent Meditation Retreat, she chronicles the humorous adventures of the dueling inner voices that emerge in the silence: one intent on focusing on the seemingly negative aspects of her experiences, and the other on helping her see the positivity that can come from them. Host Daniel Chacón talks to Jennifer Howd about her retreat and the process of producing this memoir.
