‘Cos He’s The Ultimate Zen Bad Ass.
Sorry to get the word out last minute, but if you’re eating dinner now, drop your fork and head to Boulder Integral to see Jun Po Roshi speak tonight! Five reasons why you should check him out:
1. He’s HUGE into sustainability, and teaches that, with true meditative insight, anything other than environmental mindfulness becomes unfathomable. He’s one of the only spiritual teachers I’ve come across who gets this.
2. He was head of the family that developed Windowpane LSD in the 70s. He’s got a righteously interesting background!
4. He’s massively charismatic, articulate, and funny. He loves red wine and Zen tango, and is quite simply a pleasure to listen to.
5. He’ll deconstruct your world, but you’ll thank him for it. He’s updated the traditional koan system in a way that makes it more accessible for modern Americans, and it’s massively effective.
He’s speaking at Boulder Integral tonight (Tuesday, November 2) at 6:30pm. The subject: Koans vs. Mantras.
