Take Heed book project



Let me respectfully remind you,

Life and death are of supreme importance,
Time passes swiftly and opportunity is lost.
Each of us should strive to awaken,
Awaken, take heed! Do not squander your life.

This chant can be heard in Zen monasteries. Time is swiftly passing. There are many stories of travels and teachers I'd like to share with you. 

I'm asking for support from friends and sangha to help me complete a book that has been growing for many years. It will include stories from the USA, Canada, Japan, Thailand, Burma, Nepal, India and Sri Lanka.

I have found a writing mentor who can work with me for 6 months. Your contribution will go towards rent and food and fees for mentoring during this 6 month project intensive. 

Thank you for your interest and support. I welcome your feedback as I post updates on the progress of the book.
