“It is useless to try to willfully change ourselves. We are much
too entrenched in our own habitual patterns and in maintaining physical
and psychological survival. In fact, sometimes the more we focus on
trying to change ourselves, the more our patterns strengthen. But there
is a way out.” – Purna Steinitz

Purna Steinitz
is the founder of the Trimurti community based in Bozeman, Montana and
Freiburg, Germany, as well as HeartStream Education, a non-profit
organization that works with women and men who are incarcerated in
prison. Purna offers a perspective that people from many different
backgrounds and paths find immediately useful. For the past
thirty-three years he has been a student of Lee Lozowick, a western
teacher in the Baul tradition of Bengal, India. Please join in for a
street-wise, passionate, no-nonsense consideration of deep abiding
change.

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
