Charlie accompanies his Head Keeper Bernie Glassman through travels around the world

I found my way to this world through the left-over lumps of clay from Jeff Bridges’ pottery wheel.  After heeding my call to take shape,  he, the Dude, sent me to help his friend Bernie to wage peace around the world.

I feel that I’m not alone.

I believe there are others out there who want to Head for Peace.

Streets of Cologne

We passed through Cologne, Germany. We met Sensei Frank DeWalle. He told us that the Cathedral of Cologne is a cathedral of lovers.  People pray there to find romance.  He visited, and so did his girlfriend, before they met.     After the cathedral, I walked around town.   I didn’t find a lover.

Going to India!

I just heard that we’re taking two trips to India.  1st, we’ll be working with the Venerable Pannavati  assisting (untouchables) Dalits in Tamil Nadu, Southern India in November.  In January, we’ll go on a Socially Engaged Pilgrimage, visiting locations connected to the life of the Buddha and meeting people involved in social issues.  I’m so excited! I found my way to this world through the left-over lumps of clay from the dudely pottery wheel of Jeff Bridges. After heeding my call to take shape, the Dude sent me to...

I decided to help out the Formerly Tough Zen Guy

I decided to help out the Formerly Tough Zen Guy

I was brought into being by Jeff Bridges in order to help his friend Bernie to wage peace around the world.  Word on the street is that Bernie was a tough Zen monk who yelled at his students and beat them with sticks to provoke their enlightenment. However, as I joined my first workshop with him, I instead found a Brooklynite in his early 70′s with a beard and ponytail who travels around telling stories and cracking jokes.  It turns out that I’m traveling with a Formerly Tough Zen Guy. At every workshop, he listens to participants...

They tell me that this is only the beginning....
