Michael Taft on Deconstructing Yourself was kind enough to interview me on Magick, Meditation and The Fire Kasina, as well as many other topics, and then interview me about educational models and projection as they relate to meditation.
I am creating a new series of Vimeo Videos:
- The Ñana Graphs Explained which discusses graphs of the stages of insight
- The Ñanas and Jhanas Mind Map Explained which is a good start on basic mapping
- Nirodha Samapatti which is a pretty advanced topic
- Vipassana, the Six Sense Doors, and the Three Characteristics with this one being a good starting place

Here's a transcript of part of an interview I did with Vince at Buddhist Geeks:
In February of 2009, I invited several people to my house in Alabama, aka Hurricane Ranch, for a long weekend of discussion, sharing, and practice. Included in this group were several members of the Dharma Overground, as well as some older dharma buddies. Fortunately, while we were having tons of great dharma discussions we recorded one of them and it is available here for download. In this discussion we covered several different topics, but the main theme of the talk was "Getting it Done versus Doing It." Participating in this conversation were Hokai Sobol, Kenneth Folk, Vince Horn, Tarin Greco, and myself. The 2 hours of this conversation are split into 3 parts. They are in the player found below this text block.
In July, 2010, Tarin Greco and I sat down at Hurricane Ranch to discuss AF (Actual Freedom), and the resulting 2-hour conversation is presented below in 2 parts. These contain a little cell-phone interference, sorry about that. They address many issues related to AF and should be interesting, thought provoking, and hopefully fun and practical. Enjoy! They are also in the player below this text block. (available shortly)
In March of 2011, I got to do a series of videos at Cheetah House at Brown University on the Stages of Insight and other topics:
