Daylong: Being an Earthling, with Wes Nisker

September 19, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

In this Daylong, Wes Nisker will help us explore the joys and sorrows of living in the modern era, including the issues of climate change and species extinction. The retreat will focus on how the Buddha’s teaching can help us accept our place in the scheme of things, find sanity, and begin to heal the earth’s eco-systems. By placing today’s headlines in the context of human history, Wes offers us the relief, insights and laughter that only vast perspectives on consciousness can bring.

PRAISE FOR THE WORK of Wes Scoop Nisker

“Essential Crazy Wisdom” and “Crazy Wisdom Saves the World Again!”

“Nisker’s book is twenty-three times more liberating than the Bible, the Torah, and the Koran combined. It may be crazy to say such a thing but it is also wise.”  — Tom Robbins, author

“Brilliant, original, consciousness expanding, profound, mysterious and very funny. Oh, the audacious joy of crazy wisdom! What more could you ask?” — Jack Kornfield, Buddhist teacher and author

“A profound journey beyond science, philosophy, and psychology. Instant therapy!” — Daniel Goleman

“A milestone in contemporary Buddhism. I dare you to find a book on science that is so personal, or a book on meditation that is so funny and forgiving.” — Joanna Macy

“Buddha’s Nature is truly a healing and historic achievement.” — Brian Swimme, author, The Universe Story

“This book is a fabulous tool for our greater joy and achievements.” — Thich Nhat Hanh
