Day 2! Wow, after an incredible first day of contributions I feel completely honored. I’ve been getting so many wonderful messages about the project and everyone has been so generous. I can’t say thank you enough.
To help kick off the campaign, a really great guy, Ted Meissner of the Secular Buddhist Association, arranged to do an interview with me for his Secular Buddhist Podcast (which you can see in iTunes). In his podcast, Ted interviews some of the foremost minds in Buddhist and scientific fields. The podcast does a great service in that it “recognizes that the rich cultural setting of traditional Buddhism is wonderful in its own right, and that there is an opportunity for it to evolve in ways more suited to other cultural contexts as well.”
I’ve been listening to this podcast on the road for over a year now, and it was pretty surreal listening to an episode with me in it. I’m very happy with how it went, and since I’m asking for people to contribute to this film, I’d like to provide people with information about me and this project so that they can understand what they are supporting.
I go into my background, why I started this film, how I’ve changed over the course of this journey, and how amazing the people of this country and tradition are. Please enjoy!
