The self-proclaimed "forrealist poet" is the host of an open mic reading series called The Dead Bards of Philadelphia, which is held on the 4th Thursday of every month at the Venice Island Performing Arts Center in Manayunk, PA.

Wednesday Noontime Meditations
Wednesday, June 12th – 12:00 noon to 12:45 pm

Whispering Tree Sangha
A time to refresh your soul in the sacred silence... This meditation time is in the tradition of Thich Naht Hahn, Amma Sru Karunamayi, Nature, and other wisdom teachers. It will run most every Wednesday. Come sit between earth and heaven at Temenos. We are planting the seeds of "The Whispering Tree Sangha" in our Sacred Grove. Each meditation time will be led by the "Bell" and will flow between traditional mindfulness sitting to and a very Slow Walking Meditation. Each session is suitable for anyone who desires to just “be”.

All are welcome
Each session will end with four rings of he Bell and a chanted "OM"
(anyone who wishes to leave may do so)
Extended time will be allowed for deeper immersion
Please note that this is not a class – it is meditation time
