Presenting Rumi!

The greatest mystic poet of 13th century Islam, Jalāl al-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī, is one of the most passionate and profound poets. His presence remains strong centuries later because his words seem to reflect the divine, and reminds us of our unity in the Divine.  Born in what is present day Afghanistan in 1207, Rumi spent the last twelve years of his life writing Masnawi which consists of over 60,000 poems before […]

Ancestors! Stop Playin’ Day!And, the name that sums up Juneteenth for me is Sankofa Day.It gets me especially choked up and misty-eyed.

Celebrating TDOV! The International Transgender Day of Visibility 3.31.22

To some people, the International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) celebrates the modern values of Tolerance and Inclusion. But no. It really celebrates a resurgence of our Ancestors’ advanced cultural values, a return to greater societal health, and the sputtering but welcome end of Colonialism. We are getting there. Acceptance of Trans and Gender Non-Binary (GNB) people is a fine marker of how Colonial or Colonially conditioned a person is. […]

Wake: The Hidden History of Women-Led Slave Revolts

I learned a lot from Wake: The Hidden History of Women-Led Slave Revolts by Dr. Rebecca Hall. Not only is Dr. Hall the author, she is the character around whom the story revolves. In this highly graphic, graphic nonfiction novel Dr. Hall is engaged in research necessary to complete her PhD dissertation. The subject of her dissertation is women-led slave revolts in British America. It turns out that the subject […]

Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind: Contact Has Begun (2020)

Do You CE5? Did You See CE5? Dr. Stephen Greer’s CE5 movie Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind: Contact Has Begun is a necessary masterpiece. And for me, there’s a added gem inside this gem. Just like his Sirius Disclosure and Unacknowledged, the two movies which led up to it, CE5 serves up what we need. It is like a spoonful of powerful medicine: essentially delicious, because it is full […]

From Christendom to Freedom: Journey-Making with a Black Transgender Elder

 Are You Looking For Your Freedom? Jonathon Thunderword describes his journey to mental, spiritual and religious freedom in his beautiful and revealing book. Jonathon’s book is short and to the point and reflects the man himself. I first saw Jonathon on a Friday night at a synagogue. Unknown to both of us, this was to be a night unlike any other. It was the first time I attended a Jewish […]

In Search of Voodoo: Roots to Heaven (2019)

In Search of Voodoo: Roots to Heaven is a 2019 documentary made by Benin-born model turned actor, writer and filmmaker, Djimon Hounsou. Mr, Hounsou, whose family name means “born in the voodoo shrine,” explores the origin, role and meaning of Voodoo in Benin. Like Hounsou, Voodoo’s roots are in Benin. Hounsou is also our host in the film, but he wisely is off-screen for the most part, and beautifully narrates […]

The Heart Sutra

The Heart Sūtra aka “The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom” is a popular sutra in Mahāyāna Buddhism. The sutra states, “Form is empty, emptiness is form.” The sutra can be seen as a statement about the reality of the material world that we hear, see, taste and touch. I understand the sutra to mean: There is no there there. Or here. Only emptiness. The Heart Sutra is considered to […]

Introducing The Inspired Music of Count Carnette

A wonderful thing can happen when you read a book like Company of Prophets: you may feel strongly inspired to research the fascinating personalities you discover! Such was the case with me when I read about the outstanding musician, Count Lee William Carnette. Count Carnette is a self-taught musician living in Seattle, Washington. He began playing the piano at age three and has had no professional music training. Rather, Carnette’s […]
