Arizona

Here is a sweet resource page on Zen Buddhism. It’s a comprehensive portal of Zen writings for free downloading. Check it out.

I’ll be in Arizona for a week working with Humane Borders, an organization dedicated to stopping the large number of immigrant deaths that take place once migrants get into America from Mexico. My organization, the PDCSC, has come under a lot of heat (genuine concern, really) regarding this trip. I think we are going to learn a lot about immigration issues. I already have my opinions on the issue. I don’t believe in walls and borders, which is pretty controversial in and of itself. But in my opinion, the reasons that the Mexican border is perceived as so dangerous has to do with fear, power, pride, and a messed up American economic system.

We are making a documentary as we go. Email me for a copy.
