From 1984 to 2015, Inquiring Mind has been a donation-supported, semiannual journal dedicated to the creative transmission of Buddhadharma to the West. Born out of the Theravada Buddhist community of insight (vipassana) meditators, Inquiring Mind was highly regarded for its thought-provoking interviews of Buddhist teachers such as Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstien and Joanna Macy, as well as for art, poetry, stories and humorous essays. Readers of included followers of many different Buddhist traditions, and others interested in the philosophy and ideas of Buddhism.

After thirty-one years of service to the dharma, Inquiring Mind ceased printing. Our final issue was Spring 2015, “Blowing in the Wind.” Visit our CURRENT page to find out more about this farewell edition.
