Episode #9 Poet Walker Bass

On today’s show I am privileged to be speaking with Walker Bass. Walker is a local poet and a thinker. A man who loves the written word and its power to transform us and to take us on wondrous journeys of the mind, the heart and the spirit.

This is a mindfulness course I've taken every year since 2012: https://www.awakeningjoy.info/
One thing about this course, they let you pay in increments w/o charging a penalty. The course and the book changed my life -- changed how I react to the world.

This is a huge mindfulness resource: https://www.ramdass.org/ramdass-media-library/

Many of Ram Dass' dharma talks and meditations can be accessed here and it's all free.

This one is free too. I haven't used it much but have a friend that swears by it: http://dharmaseed.org/

Zorba: Why do the young die? Why does anybody die?
Basil: I don't know.
Zorba: What's the use of all your damn books if they can't answer that?
Basil: They tell me about the agony of men who can't answer questions like yours.
Zorba: I spit on this agony!
