Buddha Wild Monk in a Hut

This looks like an interesting documentary.

Bindu,

I'm curious, do you have an integral community of any kind there in Tennessee? We are working on building community here in San Francisco and have had a lot of luck in some regrads. I'm doing some work right now for an organization called http://www.integralawakeningcetner.org and we've been able to get some fantastic authors and integral speakers to come into town; including Marc Gafni, Joanna Macy, etc. as well as maintain some integral practice groups. Do you have other blogs you like or follow or post to? What have you found is the best way to build community using the internet?

Thanks for the interesting comment!

Hmmm... I don't know of any specific communities here in TN. I've not looked into it too closely however. If you happen to come across something like that here, I would love to hear about it.

Nashville is a nice place in that there's a pretty diverse selection of spiritual communities. Lots of meditation groups. I am a member of a Sufi circle, here in Nashville.

My Sheikh has been familiar with Wilber since he published Up From Eden, but he seems to have taken a more avid interest in the ideas recently. He brings them up in conversation quite regularly these days. I mention that to say, that I find it gratifying to see the ideas disseminated into the spiritual community at large.

Other blogs, there's definitely a few.
I don't read blogs as much as I would like to, but when I do I always check out:
http://www.vincenthorn.com/
http://indistinctunion.wordpress.com/
http://integral-options.blogspot.com/
http://zenhabits.net/
and maybe slightly off topic:
http://zenhabits.net/
http://www.kurzweilai.net/

I guess I need to put up a blog roll, just like I need to post more regularly as well. ;-)

When I get around to doing that, I'll definitely include yours.
