Don’t Be Here Now

by Peter Cunningham and Michel Dobbs

Wavy Gravy says, “If you don’t have a sense of humor, it ain’t funny”.

This strange book is an expression of The Zen Peacemakers’ “Order of Disorder.” The Order took shape in the early oughts as Roshi Bernie Glassman, aka The Great Boobysattva, looked for ways “to make sure Zen students didn’t take themselves too seriously or become sanctimonious, that they really understood the notion of letting go.” Bernie’s favorite song lyric was, “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.”
