Welcome to “How to Move Beyond Blame, Live Your Highest Purpose and Become an Unstoppable Force for Good”, Episode #97 of Co-creating Peace.

Dr. Fleet Maull joins me to talk about Radical Responsibility, and how practicing it can empower us to better co-create peace with others.

Highlights of our conversation were:

  • Fleet’s transformation from angry young man who spent 14 years in prison, to Roshi (Zen master/senior teacher), psychologist, author of 3 books & founder of 2 non-profits, one of which brings mindfulness, meditation, and emotional intelligence training into the criminal justice system;
  • The value of mindfulness & emotional intelligence to help us to co-create peace;
  • Radical Responsibility;
  • Shifting from victim mindset to the co-creative mindset & how that relates to peacemaking;
  • The Drama Triangle and its relationship to conflict;
  • The power of dialogue. 

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 & National Prison Hospice Association 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 & trauma informed approach to mindfulness & awareness meditation practice that facilitates self-healing, self-regulation, and awakening.
