As an author, I’m focused mostly on research and writing. I give only occasional talks and not all have been recorded. I’ve experimented with other formats but keeping up with the flow of writing fills the day. Here are a few things you may enjoy.

The Faces of Reality talk @ SAND18

In this talk, I explore the Kosha model to illustrate the stages consciousness goes through from self-awareness into form and experiences. A short overview of the foundations of our world experience.

Deep Forgiveness Podcast

In 2009, a half dozen of us all published on the same topic, Forgiveness, on the same day. I added a spoken word version (podcast) that later fell away when some hosting ended. I’ve restored that. (The blog was called In2Deep until 2014) 6:24
