In honor of Martin Luther King Jr’s holiday, and to herald the arrival of black history month, we bring you this very special episode, and interview with two black luminaries of the Buddhist world, Lama Rod Owens (@LamaRod1) and reverend angel Kyodo williams (@ZenChangeAngel). We talk with them about their collaborative work, Radical Dharma, and how going inward helps us transform the world. music by Yaul and Mother Cyborg –

Lately, I’ve been a huge fan of the new Accessible Yoga Podcast. Episode 2 featured Kelley Palmer and focuses on dismantling white supremacy and redistributing power in yoga spaces. Kelley will be leading an online training on Race & Equity in Yoga that starts next week. I just signed up tonight, so I hope I’ll see some of you there!

The Big Fat Gay Podcast helped me get through the early days of our quarantine and I’m so glad they’re back from their summer break!

My friend Puja is an amazing musician and Kirtan performer. Their music has been soothing my soul lately. You should check them out on Spotify and consider supporting their Patreon

But that brings me back to my original question…
