Cool Lecture @ CB Library 4/16
« on: April 14, 2008, 06:23:35 PM »

This Wed. at 7pm. 

"Introduction to 5 Little Wisdom Books with John Lang A.P."

John will discuss the following 5 books:
Tao Teaching
Chuang Tzu
The Platform Scripture (Ch'an or Zen)
The Bhagavad-Gita
Meditations - Marcus Aurelius

John is a super cool guy, he's been a practitioner of T'ai Chi and acupuncture for 30 years.  Not to mention he's a surfer.  I know him and have had the opportunity to talk with him and be treated by him (acupuncture) and I thoroughly enjoyed his outlook on life, I bet some of you would too.

See you there.

John's the closest thing to a guru I've ever had.

People like him amaze me.

He's done so much in life and studied SO MANY things.

Nothing seems to get John down or at least that's the way it appears.

Go if you get the chance.

I'm fortunate that I see him all the time and get to "shoot the shit" with him.

Careful though...... he's one of those guys that if you ask him a question....he'll often answer you with another question.  Constantly makes you think about your actions.

Which is a good thing.

I always thought he would be a cool guy to BS with, I mean sit down and have one of those really awesome conversations...you knpw the ones that can sometimes change your life.

I bet he'd be a trip to surf with too.

The lecture was really cool.  I, personally, learned a lot and am going to check out a couple of the books John suggested.  By the way, he teaches T'ai Chi every Wed. morning at the library too if anyone is interested.
