Charles Eisenstein's events

Hello everyone,

A few new things are on line with more to come in the next month. First, a couple interviews:
And a podcast of a Dharma talk I gave at the beautiful Upaya Zen Center.
These all have new material that may be unfamiliar to many of you.

Also, I'm experimenting with a new distributor for The Ascent of Humanity, Wubbit.com. The good news is that this allows independent bookstores to order the book on behalf of customers, and/or stock it on their shelves. They can get it at a standard trade discount.

Speaking of discounts, I am also offering a one-month discount for everyone else too, kind of a Christmas present. This is also available on Wubbit. $20. You can also buy them direct from me for the cover price of $25, and I will sign them to you or someone you love -- just make a note on the paypal form.

Finally, upcoming events:
January 8, 4-6pm: New Cumberland, PA, at Flow Together Yoga Studio, topic: The Invisible Path.
January 28, 7-9pm: Washington, DC, topic: TBA, probably "Living in the Gift" or "The Ascent of Humanity." contact Susan Belchamber (sbelchamber@ymail.com) for details.

Mohawk Thanksgiving Prayer

(This is an excerpt from Findhorn's website
The Earth Mother
We are all thankful to our Mother, the Earth, for she gives us all that we need for life. She supports our feet as we walk about upon her. It gives us joy that she continues to care for us as she has from the beginning of time. To our mother, we send greetings and thanks.
Now our minds are one.
The Waters
We give thanks to all the waters of the world for quenching our thirst and providing us with strength. Water is life. We know its power in many forms-waterfalls and rain, mists and streams, rivers and oceans. With one mind, we send greetings and thanks to the spirit of Water.
Now our minds are one.
