    Lama Marut Talks with Sister Jenna about "Being Nobody"

    in Self Help

    "Living an ethical life – a life of selflessness, rather than unbridled egoism, of integration and interconnection rather than alienation and myopic narcissism is the key to true happiness and the foundation for creating a better world." - Lama Marut

    Lama Marut (a.k.a. Brian K. Smith) is a modern spiritual teacher extensively trained in the spiritual traditions of India and Tibetan Buddhism.  He holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Religion and taught for over two decades in the academic world, first at Columbia University and later at the University of California, where he retired as Professor Emeritus in 2004. He lived as a Buddhist monk for eight years and has served for the past fifteen years as a spiritual teacher to students around the world. Lama Marut is currently the Spiritual Director of eight “Middle Way Centers” located in North America, Australia, and Singapore.

    In addition to several scholarly studies and translations based on Sanskrit materials, Lama Marut is the author of the popular and award-winning book, A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life (Beyond Words, 2012) and his newest release, “Be Nobody.”  He is presently on a 14-city tour in the U.S. and Canada.  Visit his website at http://lamamarut.org

    The Power of Forgiveness: Forgiving as a Path to Freedom

    in Spirituality

    The Power of Forgiveness: Forgiving as a Path to Freedom with Joan Gattuso

    In this enlightening title, Gattuso shows readers how to let go of past grievances in order to embrace a life of joy and peace. Sympathetic to the often immense undertaking forgiveness requires, Gattuso provides prescriptive exercises, visualizations and meditations to help readers overcome the most emotional challenges involved in the process.

    Including real-life examples of those who have chosen radical forgiveness in light of extreme circumstances, Gattuso illustrates that forgiveness is possible in even the most unthinkable situations. Yet, she also provides guidance for incorporating forgiveness into our daily lives to address the smaller grievances, as well. Whether we are irritated over a stolen parking spot or hurt from an off-handed insult, we are often unaware that our unwillingness to forgive each and every day allows anger to build up in our daily lives.

    Written with empathy and offering inspiration from a number of venerated spiritual leaders, this powerful manual provides readers with the tools they need to embrace forgiveness. With the potential to be life-changing, THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS is an invaluable guidebook for anyone seeking to break free from the oppression of resentment and to embrace a more joyful life. 

    Joan Gattuso has studied with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and has authored three popular books that have been translated into several languages: A Course in Love, A Course in Life, and The Lotus Still Blooms. Gattuso is a well-known Unity minister.

    Greetings from Exile plus intelligent design/teaching of creation

    in Performing Arts

    Yes, it's true, I am in exile.  I kept my Mormon husband, Mitt Omanjo, keeping a psychedlic artist named Henrick, part Russian and part SE European, at bay.  He loves to wear pinstriped suits from the 80's, preferably 3 piece.  I told him since he was fasionista outdated since 1982 that he needed be exiled and re-dressed with new spiritual clothing.  The dalai lama comes to visit frequently as well as Che Guevara's ghost on our island of St. Barts.  Henrik was supposed to go St. Kitts but Bell Campeau said there was a pseudo military operation there and it was off limits..  Bukowski pours the cocktails.  All the men distract me from my real vision, granted by St. Augustine and sometimes I have to push them to the shore.  My spiritual sister is Carson McCullers, my favorite writer, who is lost in a sea of hedonism.  Come join us as I remain in exile.  Jon will join us 1/2 way thru the fantasy.

    We will also talk about the revised laws of creation and evolution in certain states.
