- Hosts Stuart Goodnick and Dr. Robert Schmidt join Jim Wilson, poet and Many Rivers co-founder, in reflections on the 10th anniversary of Many Rivers Books & Tea in Sebastopol, CA. Jim Wilson is a former Buddhist monk, former prison chaplain, and continues his spiritual quest in the Quaker tradition. He spends much of his free time writing poetry. We discuss about how the store came to be, about how it has changed over the years, and its place in the spiritual community landscape of Sonoma County. We also consider how the store may continue to change to remain relevant to our customers in the twenty-first century.
- In addition we talk with Barry Vesser of Stone Creek Zendo in Graton about Zen Fest, the upcoming annual fundraising event for Stone Creek that will be held in the Sebastopol Masonic Hall on Sunday Dec. 2.
