Welcome to the new look of the Hardcore Zen Blog! It took me ages and ages and ages to get this to look right. I’m still not entirely satisfied with it. But I’m sick of typing HTML code. I had to learn to do that for work back about 7-8 years ago when we were starting our webpage. As soon as editing programs came in, I was like, man I ain’t never writing no HTML code again. But I did it today. And I remembered well why I vowed never to do it again. It is way worse than Zazen.
ANYWAY. Some of you have been asking if I’ll come speak in your neck of the woods. The answer is YES. But, in general I have NO IDEA how to book a speaking gig out there, wherever there happens to be. So here’s the deal. If you want me to come to your area, see if you can find a place that’ll have me. I have a new book coming out in May. I got a weekly Suicide Girls column viewed by — they tell me — millions of people. Whenever I do a speaking gig, lots of folks show up. Maybe I only get seven people for Zazen on Saturdays, but if folks don’t gotta do anything but listen to a talk, they show up. And then they challenge all the stuff I’ve just said about Zazen, having never actually done any. Weird, huh?
ANYWAY. Just set something up and I’ll gladly travel out to wherever and sign books, talk Zen, lead some Zen, whatever. Just write me with the when’s, where’s and most importantly how’s.
