An ordained Buddhist Minister, Matt Sinkovitz shares tales of his Pentecostal upbringing – including a trip to China with his mother to do missionary work as a 13-year-old. He speaks about finding the courage to ask the “bigger” questions that led to a college philosophy class that, in turn, eventually led to discovering his own spiritual path.
Matt describes how love serves to connect he and his family, even though he’s taken a divergent road from his religious roots. He touches on depression, bumping up against suicidal ideation, and awakening to the idea that he was, in fact, not his mind.
That awakening opened the door to studying the mind, meditation, moving back closer to home, pouring himself into Buddhist studies and enrolling in a seminary program.
It was toward the end of his seminary studies that the direction of his work began to take clear shape.
