Since the publication of my new book, “What Wants To Be Know,” I have been listening for what’s next. I had been expecting to revise my first book, “Activist Mysticism” or do something with the material not included in my current book. Or perhaps another book would emerge from the daily notes taken by Sasa Petejan as we traveled from light column to light column. But instead I have heard that I can use the recordings I made during a teaching I gave a few years ago at the Old Grove, an old growth Redwood preserve near Occidental California. In that teaching I offered a step by step introduction to entering the natural world’s doorway to the sacred. The six of us first starting meeting at the mouth of the Russian River. As the teaching progressed we mostly met at the Old Grove with occasional visits to Quarryhill Botanical Gardens in Glen Ellen. We meet regularly for two and a half years. The recordings from that teaching are now being put through a software which creates text for me to work with.
I can’t say that I am happy or enthusiastic. This book is a rather large undertaking and I will have to find the time for it in my day. My days now have been mostly quiet with individual and group healing and some one-to-one phone and Skype. Somehow, my daily quiet will expand to encompass this new book project.
