About Me

My photo

I am a mystic madman, a wandering wildman, scholar of esoterica, dilettante sadhu, dready-headed hippie (only have a few jata on the back of my head right now, though more be forming of this third set of knotted hair), gentle yogi, fierce foe of falsity. I was a preacher, but I renounced that. I was married, but she renounced me. I was a grad student at one of the top universities in the world on my way to becoming a professor, but I realized they taught lies there too. I am protector of souls, lover of mountains, smoker of herb, fond of hot springs, oceans and lakes and rivers and rain and sunshine, devotee of Devi.

A Double Rainbow During 4th of July AUM circle in New Mexico 2009

Montana 2000 This particular year I helped start a kitchen in Bus Village, "Au Naturale Café". Food is free, no money to be exhanged--trade circle's the thing, lotsa hugs and full respect all 'round. Naked people abound as a natural way of being, and not some love-in sorta thing, respect accompanies the Rainbow Tribe's ways!!! A modern bunch who lives more like the ideals of the saints of nigh any tradition you'll likely not find (with the partial exception that celibacy is not a general rule, though many sometimes go that route, and though appropriate cuddle-puddles sometimes happen, this ain't no orgy).

Big and skinny dance naked, covered in the mud, yet no one needs feel self-conscious here (New Mexico 2009), brothers and sistas, mommas n papas n little ones too, lovin' and protectin' eachother with righteous respect and all greated with "Welcome Home" when reaching the Gathering, whether in the Americas, Australia, Asia or Europe, Africa or some island in-between.
