Zen Mind Workshop @Aquarius (video)

I had this opportunity to give this talk at Aquarius KC in their “Saturday Sages” series. Aquarius KC is a pagan/new age book store that has been in Kansas City for many years. People don’t realize it happens to be the best place to shop for malas and Buddha statues too, as far as I can tell. If you’re in KC, you should go there. Here’s their website: https://aquariuskc.com/

The video contains about half of the talk. The podcast linked below contains audio of the whole talk.

This talk was recorded on September 28th. Around 30 people were in attendance. If they invited me to give another talk there, I definitely would. It was a good experience.

Dharma at the Gaea Retreat

Had a great experience bringing the Dharma to pagans at the Heartland Pagan Festival. I taught meditation to hippies and nudists and pagans and it was wonderful. They were fully engaged and asking questions and we meditated together amidst the drum circles and fire.

 

I started with the line “People say that when you’re nervous you should picture your audience naked. I’m having a really easy time doing that.” And I got a lot of laughs.

I am going to write something long about my experience. I just wanted to check in. 

It was a spiritually transformative experience. I’ve never been around so much nonjudgment and positivity.

I think I’ve brought some of it back with me.
