Often I write to you about things that interest me — like my last post on whether beauty will save the world. I rarely write to you about New School conversations. But let’s look at seven recent TNS conversations:
- Actor and Zen teacher Peter Coyote talking with Steve Heilig about his new memoir The Rainman’s Third Cure
- Food writer Michael Pollan talking about his new research into the healing properties of psychedlics for the dying
- Poet Jane Hirschfield talking with Eric Karpeles about her new collections of poetry and prose
- Physician Rachel Naomi Remen talking about the discovery model learning
- Philosopher Jacob Needleman’s spiritual biopgraphy, of time and the soul
- Astrologer Caroline Casey’s equinoctial eclipse persian new year comedic eclipse of Mars and Venus tour
- And film-maker Walter’s Murch’s astonishing rediscovery of Bode’s Law — how new evidence confirms and 18th century conjecture on orbital harmonies.
