My first guest this week will be explorer, photographer, and award-winning author James Michael Dorsey. James has traveled extensively in 48 countries, his main pursuit of the last 15 years being remote cultures, mostly in Asia and Africa. In addition to being featured in Lonely Planet, Travelers’ Tales, and Chicken Soup for the Soul anthologies, James is a frequent contributor to the Los Angeles Times, the Christian Science Monitor, and United Airlines’ Hemispheresmagazine. We’ll discuss travel and his new book Baboons for Lunch.
In my second segment, I’ll talk with Sukanya Belsare and Kyoko Kimura from the San Francisco Brahma Kumaris center. We’ll talk about the hows, whys, and much more about meditation, as well as the mission and initiatives of the Brahma Kumaris organization, which is celebrating their 40th year promoting meditation in the United States. Sukanya and Kyoko will even lead us in a guided meditation!
