EuropeI’m on my way to Europe today.

My first stop is Benediktushof near Frankfurt, Germany, for a five day sesshin Oct. 2-6. There is still time to sign up. Go to their website for details. The topic of discussion will be the Zen classic Song of the Jewel Mirror Samadhi. I will do dokusan (personal interviews/discussion) with all members who want to.

Also, the movie about me, Brad Warner’s Hardcore Zen is having its world premiere at the Buddhist Film Festival of Europe in Amsterdam on October 5th at 6pm. I probably won’t make it to the screening but I’m gonna see if I can. But director Pirooz Kalayeh will be there.

My next stop is Frankfurt on October 7th at Dogen Zendo. Info is here. Please stop by for a chat about Zen!

Next I’ll be at Dharma Buchladen in Berlin on October 9th.

On October 11th, I’ll be speaking in Amsterdam. The details are here.

    Hi Brad the link you posted about groningen says nothing about your event.

    and I found this about your 11 October in Amsterdam for which I am signing up now.

    Hi Brad!

    Your tour sounds awesome, Mr. Flügelhorn! Too bad you ain’t coming to Finland this time. It would’ve been so nice to see you again, douchebag.

    All the best to your tour! Safe travels, bro!

    “You are not it; in truth it is you”

    The mirror-mind reflects without discrimination. It sees things as they are.

      It seems that our identity relationship with *it* is non-commutative. Dong-Shan, what a card!

    I’ll write you a letter tomorrow
    Tonight I can’t hold a pen
    Someone’s got a stamp that I can borrow
    I promise not to blow the address again

    Lights that flash in the evening,
    Through a crack in the drapes

    Jesus rides beside me
    He never buys any smokes
    Hurry up, hurry up, ain’t you had enough of this stuff
    Ashtray floors, dirty clothes, and filthy jokes

    See you’re high and lonesome
    Try and try and try

    Lights that flash in the evening,
    Through a hole in the drapes
    I’ll be home when I’m sleeping
    I can’t hardly wait

    I can’t wait. Hardly wait.

    I’ll be there at the Amsterdam gig.

    I’ve been trying to contact you for ages… without luck so far.

    Next time you’re in Holland and need another gig, let me know. There;s a great little zendo in the center of the country where I could organise one for you.
