reading list for esalen...

This is especially for you, Afi; I had your voice ringing in my ear: "reading list, reading list, reading list." So, if you can make your way this far here is that reading list of works cited for Esalen workshop 24-26 July. Thanks to you all for a wonderful weekend.

Sorry I have been so lax with entries to this blog. All other energies going other places. But please do check out the three new songs we posted on iTunes: Spirit in the Cave of the Heart, Vedahametam and Sab Bhole; and the new videos posted on YouTube, too.
