In memory of Roland Griffiths.

We Share the Cancer: Roland Griffiths and his wife, Marla, sit with Manish Agrawal to discuss how a stage IV cancer diagnosis has changed their lives.

Before the diagnosis I considered myself to be reasonably awake, with a long history of practicing meditation, aware that I am aware and interested in practicing that. After the diagnosis there was a magnitude, a degree of awakening that occurred that far surpassed anything I had experienced before.
