I’m pleased to say that in the last month, I participated in a number of activities that have helped to get my book and its messages out to more people. The Howard Zinn Book Fair on Saturday, Nov. 15 in San Francisco was a well-attended gathering of like-minded people. I sat at a table in a big room that was full of book sellers with very good books. I did not manage to sell any books, but I had some great conversations.
I also co-led a Workshop Series on Working with Fear While Following Your Path with the Metta Center for Nonviolence. Two Tuesday evenings on a digital platform, Nov. 11 and 18, and then also a one-day retreat on Sunday, Dec. 7. This workshop series was designed to help participants deepen their awareness of their heart’s longing and better understand the role and effects that fear has their lives, with an emphasis on getting into a different relationship with fear so that it doesn’t stop them from following that call of the heart.
Finally, I had the honor of doing a book talk at a Sonoma County Vets for Peace Meeting attended by twenty vets on December 8.
Again, I invite any of you to discuss anything about the book that moves you. I would love it if this space could be a sort of virtual book group. Please let me know if you have any questions and also share if anything has inspired you.
