    Unplug Yourself Paid Member

    MEDITATION MAY BE our last, best refuge from iPhones, Treos, iPods—and our overscheduled lives. Now Vipassana teacher Sharon Salzberg has come up with a way we can slow down, ditch our electronic gadgets—temporarily, at least—and go on retreat without leaving home. Unplug, her new interactive kit (Sounds True, 2008, $26.95), provides everything you need to visit your “inner Wyoming” (that place of “peace, spaciousness, clarity, and freedom that exists within each of us”) for a restorative hour or day or weekend.More »

    Books in Brief Paid Member

    Outrider Anne Waldman La Alameda Press, 2006 178 pp.; $18.00 (paper) "Outrider is a line of demarcation. It's words-obsession for the honor, dignity of a mind ill at ease, restless, jumping from desk to orally standing-at-attention, examining itself. A maker of poetry." This is Anne Waldman's first of many descriptions of the poetic Outrider tradition celebrated in this collection of poems, essays, and interviews. Outrider is a term she adopted in 1974 to capture the spirit of the poetry program she founded with Allen Ginsberg at Naropa University; for Waldman, Outrider is a lineage that extends back to Walt Whitman and includes all of those American poets who resisted the trends of the day in search of something new.
