Following the trend of many self-destructive youths, Noah Levine's search for meaning first led him to punk rock, drugs, drinking and dissatisfaction. Luckily, however, his search didn't end there. Having clearly seen the uselessness of drugs and violence, Noah looked for positive ways to channel his rebellion against what he saw as lies in society. Author of "Dharma Punx" and "Against the Stream," Levine is now a Buddhist teacher, author and counselor.
At USC on Oct. 29, 2009, he talked about how he fueled his anger and energy into the practice of Buddhism to awaken his natural wisdom and compassion. Visit USC on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/usc
