Tricycle’s contributors and editors are appearing all over the place this week—in The New York Times, the Paris Review, and in talks on college campuses.
Tricycle contributor Curtis White was interviewed in the Paris Review, and discussed science, ideology, and “being awake” in our current culture.
White, whose review of the new films, Steve Jobs and San Francisco 2.0, will appear in the Spring 2016 issue, has previously discussed themes of scientism in “The Science Delusion” and corporate America’s mindfulness industry in “It’s Not Me, It’s You.”
Feminist and cultural critic bell hooks, who has previously written on multiculturalism and racism for Tricycle, was featured in a New York Times interview. In the talk, hook said that she relies on a Thich Nhat Hanh aphorism for navigating the predominately-white, small town in Appalachia where she lives, and relating to her neighbors: “Let’s throw this pebble into the water, it may not go far in the beginning, but it will ripple out.”
Katy Butler dreams about Medicare covering longer, quality hospice care in “Imagine Medicare Part Q for Quality at the End of Life,” which appeared in The New York Times’ opinion section. Butler has written extensively on end of life care. You can listen to her Tricycle Talk, and read her past magazine feature, “A Life Too Long.”
You can read more from Wilson in his recent article, “A Big Gay History of Same-Sex Marriage in the Sangha.”
New on Tricycle this week:
- Features editor Andrew Cooper responds to Donald Trump’s antics in “Sounding the Alarm on Trump.”
- Janak Rogers explores the complicated relationship between Soka Gakkai and their political support of a pro-military change to the Japanese constitution in “Peace and Politics.”
- An online retreat on letting go is now available with Kevin Griffin, founder of the Buddhist Recovery Network.
- Tricycle’s new Film Club selection, The Mindful Revolution, explores whether meditation could change the corporate world, or is just being used to maximize profits.
And here’s what we’re reading at Tricycle:
- Low-income and homeless children are benefiting from meditation and yoga in the South Bronx. (Story by the Village Voice.)
Finally, a blog post from last week, John Tresch’s “Buddhify Your Android,” had Tricycle readers buzzing on social media about the role of meditation apps.
