Fierce Light Workshops: NYC and San Fran, with Velcrow Ripper!

I just got back from San Fran, where I explored the beatpoet.yogi.dharmabum lineage, friendship, and got to help out at my friend Velcrow Ripper's great workshop, "Fierce Light: Spirit in Action."

Check out Velcrow's film, Fierce Light!

The workshop goes along with an extended Q&A you ask yourself.

How do we take the fruits of our spiritual practices out into the world? What does a peaceful warrior look like off the mat? The cushion? One of my favorite parts of the film is when Thich Nhat Hanh spoke..."If you hear bombs outside the meditation hall, you have to get off the cushion and go help. But if you're involved in social work all the time, you might neglect your practice."

This weekend is the Fierce Light workshop, NYC style...for more info, look HERE We'd love to meditate, yoga, question and explore with you!
