The Mystical Positivist - Radio Show #239 - 29OCT16

The Mystical Positivist is now a weekly radio show on KOWS-LP 107.3 FM, Occidental, CA. Listen live on Saturday evenings from 4:00 - 6:00pm, PST, via the web at KOWS Live Stream
This week's podcast features:
  • A conversation in the studio with Ken McLeod, a senior Western translator, author and teacher of Tibetan Buddhism. He received traditional training mainly in the Shangpa and Kagyu lineages through a long association with his principal teacher Kalu Rinpoche, whom he met in 1970. Under Kalu Rinpoche’s guidance McLeod learned the Tibetan language and completed two, traditional three-year retreats (1976-83). In the years that followed, he traveled and worked with Kalu Rinpoche on various projects and became a respected interpreter and translator of Buddhist texts.

    After Kalu Rinpoche’s passing in 1989, McLeod established Unfettered Mind in Los Angeles as a place for those whose path lies outside established institutions. In the early ’90 his private practice model of one-on-one consultations on Buddhist practice roiled the Buddhist world, only to become an accepted model for Buddhist teaching in the West. McLeod has always been concerned with translation, including the translation of texts, of rituals, of practices and of teaching methods. Currently his interest is in presenting traditional Buddhist teachers to bring out their mystical basis and orientation. His books include The Great Path of Awakening (1987), Wake Up to Your Life (2001), An Arrow to the Heart (2007), Reflections on Silver River (2014) and most recently A Trackless Path (2016).
