Big Hearts and Minds Unite!
This past weekend I was a guest at the â€œBig Mind, Big Heartâ€ event with Genpo Roshi (www.bigmind.org), Bill Harris of Centerpointe (www.centerpointe.com ) and Erika Luckett (www.erikaluckett.com) a gifted signer who performed with fire and beauty in between the Big Mind Big Heart sessions. I was also fortunate to share the light with these big hearts and give the audience a taste of my poetry. As a true bonus dear Erika enhanced my poetry with her background guitar and shared her spirit with me. There were 250 plus people in attendance! Genpo and Bill were outstanding teachers! All in all, it was another significant highlight in my life and a rare opportunity to stand among teachers and friends alike as we collected the voices we had long since forgotten and welcomed them in our hearts once again. I will post photos soon. Big Heart Big Mind was not the only event in town! My art was in an art collective show in a slide show presentation along with my poetry audio track â€œI am SHEâ€ from Crowned Compassion at The Hive Gallery on Spring Street in L.A. It was a powerful group of artists that came together to celebrate the integral approach to art and Paul Lonelyâ€™s birthday (www.suicidedictionary.com), the soulful music of Michael Garfield (also featured on Integral Naked) and the grace of many others. Even though I could not make it across town to the gallery in time for the show, I am so grateful to be part of this circle. I encourage you to visit their websites to get familiar with their talents and gifts! You will be glad that you did!!!
