Death of a Teacher

Below is what I wrote the night I learned Ram Dass had left his body. I posted it on social media on December 23rd at 12:09 am. Writing is one of my main ways that I work through my grief, and crafting these words was incredibly healing for me. Since then, I did go to…

Recent Interview and Upcoming Retreat

Just yesterday I was on Shankara Das’s new show, “Eartheart Radio,” on KSKQ out of Southern Oregon, where we discussed the path of Love. Every week he showcases a different saint, and this week he highlighted Neem Karoli Baba. Pretty cool idea for a radio show if you ask me!

In other news, I’ll be joining my guru brothers in Kripa to co-lead a retreat in New Hampshire for the first weekend in October. More details here.

It is Radical Wholeness weaving itself into existence, the Light of Love spilling forth from full cup to full cup, and the Holy Spirit flooding into the world.

Without me even noticing it, the conversation evaporated into silence. Ram Dass simply looked at me, and I melted into the chair, filled with love. I looked across the…

Because the World Needs Us.

I have been writing much about suffering, so today I thought I would write about love. It’s difficult to discuss it in a way that is fresh and alive. The word itself died long ago in the coffin of cliche and teenage romance. What good will saying it one more time do? When I first…
