A new podcast episode is here at last! One of my favorite poets, Pattiann Rogers, is my guest on the Journals of Spiritual Discovery Podcast.
Also of note, sign up now for the TAT Foundation’s August Workshop: Beyond Imagination. TAT ‘s events are a spectacular way to meet new friends and get exposed to some of the most interesting spiritual teachers.
Lastly, check out my no-b.s. book Subtraction: the Simple Math of Enlightenment. As one Amazon reviewer said: “I hate writing reviews so I’ll keep it simple: Highly Recommended.”
Check out the latest podcast: Riding High with Spiritual Poetry.
My book, Subtraction: The Simple Math of Enlightenment, is now available.
I plan to get back to a more regular broadcast of podcasts when I return from Ireland. Till then, all the best to you!
Subtraction: The Simple Math of Enlightenment is now in print, available from Amazon or your local bookseller. What’s it about? It’s an entertaining and informative look at the seven years of my spiritual path which culminated in enlightenment.
From the Foreword by Bob Cergol:
A subtractive, deconstructive process is the surest way to successful conclusion of a spiritual path. It was the main piece of the shortcut that Richard Rose said existed. But just what in the world does subtraction on a spiritual path really mean? How could it translate into a viable spiritual practice? How does one follow a subtractive path?
That is precisely what this book is about, what it so eloquently reveals, and what it so satisfyingly illustrates, all in a way that frequently reminded me throughout my reading of it, that the author of these pages is also a talented and inspiring poet.
From fasting to falling in love, teaching kids to 30-day solitary retreats, a Zen master in West Virginia to an Indian guru in Germany, and a dozen other adventures and misadventures, Subtraction presents a wholehearted search for God, the real self, our true nature, or whatever you want to call that splinter in your mind which won’t let you rest until you find the answer.
Actually, this is what was new last week, but I forget to write the update. Here’s the belated good news on what’s new:
- The Jerry Wennstrom interview. If you have even the tiniest sliver of interest in art and creativity, this interview will impress you.
- Registration is open for the April TAT Foundation meeting. The best spiritual event on the East Coast. I’ll be there.
- A day-long event with Bob Fergeson and Tess Hughes is happening in London in early May, and I’ll be leading a weekend retreat in Ireland in April. Learn about both events at TessHughes.com.
Be well, be strong, be kind.

I don’t need to write anything else to get you to read this, do I? Really?
