I’m at the SAND conference in San Jose. It’s been a very full schedule, rich with connections. There hasn’t been time for much else. I’ll be tackling comments and messages later this week.
My talk went well and there where many questions. The official video crew didn’t show but the talk was videoed and audio recorded by friends so something should be available. I’ll post the slides too.
The panel discussion at Sofia University had 15 participants. I was dubious this was a good idea but it gelled rather well. It was also taped but likely requires some work to edit so may take time to be available. We covered a diverse range of topics over 5 hours, including teachers who stray, celestial perception, peer support, and so on.
I’ve met a number of people I’ve only known on-line plus many others. Some very good discussions, a little bit of support and one fiery bit when a presenter tried to tell me hallucinogenics where a good spiritual practice. (laughs) Rick Archer’s Robert Thurman interview is hilarious but pointed. Great talk by Bernardo Kastrup demonstrating consciousness is fundamental, purely through logic. A remarkable group healing by Kirstin Kirk. And lots and lots of concepts. There is a very intense seeker energy here.
There has also been great music and dance, mime, fire dancers and so forth. Looking forward to a bit of rest. But first, time to get back to the hall.
