- Co-host Rob Schmidt, flies solo this week as the Mystical Positivist himself, Stuart Goodnick, is out of town. This week on the show Rob speaks in the studio with Lama Jampa Dorje, aka Richard Lee Denner. Lama Jampa Dorje is a poet-printer-yogi-monk, who lived in the Sebastopol area for ten years before moving to Tara Mandala Retreat Center, in Colorado, to do a traditional Tibetan three-year solo retreat. As a younger man, Richard Denner taught himself to write poetry over decades, including stints attending UC Berkeley, raising a family in the Alaskan wilderness, and operating a bookstore in a small town in rural Washington. He has been a serious student of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism for more than two decades, and was the first American-born student to complete the traditional Tibetan three-year solo retreat in the US. He publishes D Press chapbooks available at www.dpress.net. We last spoke with Jampa on this show in late December 2013, a conversation that was first broadcast on January 11, 2014.
