Dear Folks -
We have a rare opportunity this week to hear my dear friend Dr.
Joseph Rachel. Joseph and I have been friends for over 20 years. He
is personally familiar with a number of spiritual paths. He is a
Buddhist practitioner and has studied with the Dalai Lama on several
different occasions. He and I have been involved in an on-going
dialogue about the matters I have mentioned to you several times -
authority, mysticism, ritual and transformation. He will be giving us
his perspective on these things. There will also be ample time for
what questions you might have.
Joseph is an engaging, funny and clearly an excellent spiritual
