Nights of Grief & Mystery Tour
We have an idea where the monsters are. That’s where we’re headed. Friends are forged on the dark road headed out of town, and so we head there again, sojourning across North America and the United Kingdom in the name of psychic sanity and spiritual resolve in these most troubled and troubling of times. These are nights in which love letters to life are written and read aloud. There’s some boldness in them. They have that tone. These nights have the mark of our time upon them, and they’re timely, urgent, alert, steeped in mortal mystery. They’re quixotic. They have swagger. What would you call such a thing? We call them Nights of Grief & Mystery. See all upcoming tour dates, locations and to buy tickets online.

The Meaning of Death
Many among us now are crazy for meanings, and crazed by seeking them out. The meanings of life aren’t inherited. What is inherited is the mandate to make meanings of life by how we live. The endings of life give life’s meanings a chance to show. The beginning of the end of our order, our way, is now in view. This isn’t punishment, any more than dying is a punishment for being born.

The Haiku Sessions
This three day teaching is part wonder, part battle cry and part strategy for the beginnings of a deeply wrought human life which makes peace with the ravaged world, finds a home along the old abandoned road, and honours the grief soaked longing for those things and those people we thought we lost. This is what generations to come deserve from us, this labour, and it might yet fashion from us a generation of ancestors worth coming from. Read more…
