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.

Journeys

Today I visited a local Hindu Temple and it was a wonderful experience.  I love visiting sacred places.

I had a conversation with the temple priest about the oneness of all things and it was very moving. 

 

This weekend I’m going to an event called the Heartland Pagan Festival. I will be camping for four days and leading a meditation workshop. 

 

I will be spending time with hippies and radicals and weird people. People a lot less boring than me. I will engage in some of their rituals, getting my chakras cleansed and banishing obstacles. I will sit by a bonfire and dance in the moonlight. And I will meditate in the woods every morning. 

I expect to come back inspired.

 

There will be stories and there will be pictures upon my return.
