    Zen and the Art of Dying: The Film's Director Broderick Fox

    in Movies

    Broderick Fox’s award-winning narrative, experimental, and documentary works present challenging, socially relevant issues through accessible, character-driven storytelling and have screened in over 50 international festivals. Fox’s last feature documentary The Skin I’m In (2012) had its world premiere at the Byron Bay International Film Festival in Australia, where he met Zenith Virago. She was an audience member who approached him after the screening, and their shared sensibilities and interests precipitated an immediate connection, leading to Fox's latest documentary, Zen and the Art of Dying.  Zenith is an activist and educator who for over 20 years has been leading Australia towards a more communal, celebratory, and creative engagement with death and dying. From her origins as a young mother in the UK, to her present day identity as a lesbian, feminist, and self-described deathwalker in the idyllic seaside town of Byron Bay, Her Zenith’s personal and professional experiences quietly challenge our core assumptions about life and dissolve our taboos around death. More information on the film and the natural death care movement.

    Zen Master Jeff Kitzes Asks: "Whose Path Am I On?"

    in Entrepreneur

    Are you stuck in a rut? Are you unhappy in your job? So are a majority of employees, even those who feel fortunate to have a job.

    Livelihood host Marcy Rosenbaum and guest Zen Master Bon Soeng (Jeff Kitzes) discuss what you can do when you feel you’re living someone else’s plan for your life. Jeff talks about the power of looking inward to find what’s most important to you. When you can’t change the company or the boss, there are still some things you can do to find increased satisfaction at work. Your career, he suggests, can be an expression of who you are, even when your opportunities are stalled or limited.

    In today's interview, Jeff talks about the power of looking inward to find the meaning in the opportunities you encounter.

    He enjoys my reaction of horror as he references Donald Rumsfeld comment "You don't know what you don't know"; and my chagrin when I acknowledge that insightful remarks can come from unlikely sources. (I take some consolation that Rumsfeld stole the comment from Albert Einstein, who said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge; knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand".)

    How does someone become a Zen Master?

    One experience at a time.

    Meet Jeff Kitzes, Guiding Teacher at Empty Gate Zen Center in Berkley California. Also known as Zen Master Bon Soeng (which means "original nature") he is a meditation teacher, carpenter, licensed psychotherapist, writer and celebrant.

    Join Us With Zen Garcia To Reveal The Key To The Kingdom

    in Current Events

     Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

    14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

    15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

    16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

    17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

    18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    The ORACLE Speaks With ... YOU!

    in Spirituality

    I am thankful for the breath I breathe, for the tears I shed,for the joy in my heart and for YOU in my life. I have been blessed with so much. Oh to be sure, there many "things" that I want; that I have had before, on more than one occasion. Then I didn't really appreciate the "things" I had. One thing for sure, I appreciated the "poeple" in my life; my husband, daughters, family, friends and fans. Oh, I am thankful for so much. Especially for you, those of you who listen to the show every Sunday. Thank you. Thank you G-D.


    This Week's Theme from The ORACLE's Heart:


    I am led by the spirit to share a word of caution: beware the evil that lurks with-in. It's manifestation oft times can not be seen by the eye, yet, instead, by the sense that all is not right. Heed that sense. It is the guidance of Adjusters who know the path you must lead to your greater knowing. Trust that instinct for knowing the TRUTH.


    A Special Tribute to Retired Congresswoman, ambassador Diane E. Watson. I simply call her Cousin Diane. We'll be honoring her at the Zen Lounge on Ventura Blvd., just West of Lankersheim. 3 PM PST. Come meet a living legend and have a good time at the same time. Live music, awesome food and great company.

    Artist and Composer Mark Kostabi ...Come celebrate ..Birthday time !

    in Pop Culture

    Artist and Composer Mark Kostabi was born in Los Angeles in 1960 to Estonian immigrants. Raised in Whittier, California, he studied drawing and painting at California State University, Fullerton. Kostabi moved to New York in 1982, and by 1984, emerged as a leading figure in the East Village art scene where he cultivated a provocative media persona by publishing self-interviews reflecting on the commodification of contemporary art. By 1987, his work was widely exhibited in New York galleries as well as prominently throughout the United States, Japan, Germany and Australia. He inspired extensive international press coverage in 1988 when he founded Kostabi World, his Manhattan art studio, which employs numerous painting assistants and idea people. Beginning in the early 1990s Kostabi's work has been widely exhibited throughout Italy. Kostabi established a second home in Rome in 1996. Dividing his time between Rome and New York enabled him to dramatically enhance his presence in the Italian art scene. 
    Kostabi has designed album covers for Guns 'N' Roses (Use Your Illusion) and The Ramones (Adios Amigos), Jimmy Scott (Holding Back The Years), Seether (Holding Onto strings Better Left to Fray) and numerous products including a Swatch watch, a Bloomingdales bag, Alessi vases, Rosenthal espresso cups, and a Giro d'Italia pink jersey. Kostabi is the subject of numerous documentary films.Kostabi has been profiled on 60 Minutes, Eye to Eye with Connie Chung, A Current Affair, Nightwatch , The Oprah Winfrey Show, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Nonsolomoda, West 57th, CNN, MTV and numerous television programs throughout Europe and Japan.His permanent public works include a mural in Palazzo dei Priori in Arezzo, Italy, a large bronze sculpture in the central square of San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, and a bronze portrait of Pope John Paul II in Velletri, Italy. http://mkostabi.com
