Raw, adjective: 6. ignorant, inexperienced, or untrained: a raw recruit.
Ethan Nichtern will be here in SF this Friday night. Woweeeee. Ethan founded The Interdependence Project in NYC and is one of the contemporary young mindfulness teachers I most admire.
Seriously. This is exciting. Go.
From the Shambhala Meditation Center website:
This evening with Ethan Nichtern combines readings from his new book of fiction and poetry, Your Emoticons Won’t Save You, with insight into Buddhist teachings. Ethan will discuss the connections between meditation and creativity, and how his contemplative practice informs his work as a writer as well as a Buddhist teacher. Ethan's practical and accessible style speaks to people of all ages and backgrounds. He joins us from New York City where he founded the Interdependence Project.
