Traveling to a New America on YouTube
By: James Hilgendorf
There's so much division and chaos all around us at this time in our history, but this is also a time of immense new opportunities and deep transformation.
The author has been giving talks and readings in-person and online to venues and audiences of all kinds.
These are some of the comments from recent talks:
SOMOS - Society of the Muse of the Southwest, Taos, New Mexico:
"I was deeply moved by your talk. It resonated on many levels."
"It was inspiring and challenging. The author is a combination of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Bernie Sanders, Karl Marx, the Buddha, Ralph Nader, and Walt Whitman."
Napa Valley Arts Association, Napa, California:
"Thank you for your presentation at the Art Association. I especially love your writing! Very, very strong. Huge WOW. Thanks for your dedication and talent."
Santa Barbara Chapter of IANDS - the International Association for Near-Death Studies, Santa Barbara, California:
"James Hilgendorf presented a one-hour talk tonight, titled 'Waking up to who you really are' to an audience of about 100 of our attendees. During the talk, he presented ideas from his own Buddhist background, as well as ideas and commentary from a wide array of famous people, including Arnold Toynbee, Joseph Campbell, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Leo Tolstoy, Friedrich Nietzsche, Henri Bergson, Kenneth Ring, and Daisaku Ikeda, John Wheeler, and others, in an attempt to stimulate reflection upon the nature of our lives and our relationship to the universe around us, and to provide insights into the nature of happiness and of life and death itself. After the talk, there were many interesting questions from the audience. I felt his talk gifted us all with deep insights, guidance, and light. Very simple. Very beautiful." - Barbara Bartolome, Founder/Director.
