Santiago Beruete (Spain) is a writer, lecturer, philosopher and gardener, and he has put a great deal of the knowledge that he has gained in these different fields into his book Jardinosofía (2016), a manifesto which argues that gardens are created for a greater enjoyment of life. He takes up this idea again in his most recent book, Verdolatría: La naturaleza nos enseña a ser humanos (2018), which uses growing plants as an example of the art of living well. Pablo d’Ors (Spain) is a Catholic priest and a disciple of Zen who invites us to look at the practice of meditation in his book Biografía del silencio (2019); more than a practical guide, this is a report on the experiences the author has undergone when meditating. Pablo Quintanilla (Perú) aspires to analyse a challenge that we humans face, as individuals and as a species, from day one: to understand ourselves. In La comprensión del otro (2019), the writer looks at the history of cultures in order to observe the misunderstandings and confusions that have cost us dearly, with the conclusion that comprehension is not even a decision, it is a necessity.They will talk to Teresina Muñoz-Nájar.
