posted by Stillman Brown

By Stillman Brown On Tuesday night at 11:50 PM I was in bed, under the covers, trying to sleep, my mind buzzing with the contents of Wednesday. The commute, the girl I like, the fax machine at work haunted by […]

yoga to the people

posted by streetlegalplay

There are retreats in Costa Rica and catalogs full of expensive courses at Kripalu and Omega. There are studios full of $20 courses. But what if you can’t afford these things or they’re totally off your radar? Maybe this will […]

The Areas of My (non)Expertise

posted by Stillman Brown

By Stillman Brown My areas of expertise are thin, scraggly, and can’t support much more than weeds. This week I find myself drawn towards a subject about which I am singularly unqualified to pontificate upon: politics. I’ve been eating and […]

45 Ways to Deconstruct Cosmo

posted by Stillman Brown

I know it’s not my day, but I thought I’d share this with the many eager readers of One City (“The O.C.” for short). We bloggers are on a strict rotation, so I hope I’m not stepping on anyone’s toes, […]

Getting Active

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” –The Doc So there are times when it feels right to get off your ass. Not that I don’t get off my ass already, but sometimes there […]

The Whole Bodhisattva Mishpuchah—Capisce?

posted by Ellen Scordato

I’ve been sprinkled with holy water; immersed myself, head to toe, sans makeup, nail polish, clothing, and moisturizer, in a mikvah (the Jewish ritual bath); and finally had an Asian woman snap her fingers at me. ItalBuJu. That’s not a […]

Brains and Beauty

posted by streetlegalplay

                  Last week’s Sunday Styles section of the NYTimes was plastered with the well-defined cheek bones of Carla Bruni, described in the article as a “man trap, serial heart-wrecker, rocker arm candy, photogenic cipher, arrogant heiress, polling gimmick – […]

Seedy bedtime stories: Richard Price and Sam Lipsyte at the Samovar

posted by cassmaster

Richard Price is awesome. And Sam Lipsyte is pretty darn amazing, too. Combined, they’re my excuse for not having a well thought-out blog this week. Their reading last night at the Russian Samovar, the first in a series of monthly […]

Food Politics

posted by Ethan Nichtern

This is going to be a short post and I apologize for that. I’m under deadline for an article I’m writing, and since the ID Project is blowing up, there’s a lot of work to be done to make sure […]

Yoga Punx

posted by streetlegalplay

I’m very excited to be starting this *new* year with a *new* job, teaching yoga at an all-girls school in the Lower East Side. In preparing for the classes, I’ve been scouring bookstores, the net, my friend’s minds for innovative […]

Self-image and the teenage girl: a review of Body Drama by Nancy Redd

posted by cassmaster

Here’s a book every pre-teen and teenage girl should own: Nancy Redd‘s Body Drama, just out this month from Gotham Books. I was lucky enough to see the author (and some of the young women in the book) read and […]

Shoelace

By Stillman Brown I’ve watched my shoelace get progressively shorter. The lace in question is attached to the right-side partner of a pair of black leather Kenneth Coles known as my Work Shoes (formerly, my Interview Shoes and before that, […]

Vote Early, Vote Often, Vote Dharma. Just vote!

posted by Ellen Scordato

Excited by all this primary action? Or in a state of meditative quiescence over the whole thing? I’ve always felt that not voting IS voting – for the way things are now, which is status quo, in which most of […]

Barack Obama

posted by wunderkrafthaus

I like Barack Obama.  I don’t care if he has less experience than Hillary.  He’s what America needs.

Irish Dharma?

posted by Ellen Scordato

I didn’t find a lot of buddhism in Ireland. Of course that doesn’t mean it’s not there, and it didn’t stop me from looking for interdependence. And any trip to another country always highlights that for me–with halogen highbeams, actually. […]

Mixtape Dharma: Trading Music, Sharing Love

posted by cassmaster

First of all, it’s freezing out. Nay, below freezing. In case you haven’t been outside. And if you’re reading this, whether you’re here in New York or elsewhere in Dharma Land, chances are you could use a little post-holiday giving […]

Mixing technology and practice
There were many more good sessions at the Wisdom 2.0 conference this weekend. The intention of the organizers is to post videos. I'll let you know when. Here are some of my notes from a second panel. How do we use modern, social media technologies — such as this blog — to both further o

Wisdom 2.0
If a zen master were sitting next to the chief technical officer of Twitter, what would they talk about? That sounds like a hypothetical overheared at a bar in San Francisco. But this weekend I saw the very thing at Soren Gordhamer's Wisdom 2.0 conference — named after his book of the same nam
