posted by streetlegalplay

Now that I know everyone’s top ten albums, what about books? If I was packing and could only bring ten books, I’d pick the following…wrapped in sheets of poems numerous as styrofoam peanuts, of course… (Rilke! Rumi! Sexton! Whitman! the Beats!) […]

Hey Everyone… I just saw this amazing movie/documentary called “The Dhamma Brothers”. It is the story of the Alabam prison system introducing intensive Vipassana meditation retreats into their prisoner treatment programs. I had seen “Doing Time, Doing Vipassana” which is […]

More boredom, please!

It’s a rare day that things in the office where I work are slow, but this week couldn’t be more dead. My boss is at the London Book Fair. Her assistant is “busy” re-naming files on our network drive. And […]

I Contain Multitudes

I was in Memphis this weekend, teaching meditation workshops with Mr. David Nichtern. A lot of folks in Memphis are into meditation, so that was super inspiring. Who woulda thought? I’m not going to do another political post until after […]

The Curse of Impermanence, or The Impermanence of the Curse

posted by Ellen Scordato

I’m a buddhist, yeah, but I’ve been a sports fan longer. And as uncommon as sports talk seems to be among buddhists, I’m gonna indulge. I know, I know, everyone tunes out and goes to the cushion, thinking lofty thoughts […]

Bimbos and Bratz

posted by streetlegalplay

Now that I’m working with elementary school girls, I’m immersed in current girl culture, where tamogochis have been replaced by Miss Bimbo and Barbie looks wholesome next to Bratz. For those out of middle school, Miss Bimbo is an online […]

Altered Senses: Insight or Just a Free High?

posted by Stillman Brown

By Stillman Brown I have a recurring phenomenon that arises when I’m meditating: my vision becomes slightly blurry and everything in my field of sight is tinged in white, like the shapes in my room are covered in downy white […]

Wants and Needs, Part II

posted by Ellen Scordato

My new favorite art site: Wants for Sale Two nyc artists, Christine and Justin, started painting pictures of things they wanted. Visualizing, them, as it were, on canvas. Then they started selling those paintings for the exact price of that […]

Oh yeah….Breath.

posted by streetlegalplay

  Sorry I have been MIA.  I have not been sitting down much, at a computer to write or a cushion to meditate.  What I have been doing is moving like a treadmill-girl, mostly on incline.  But this weekend I’ve […]
