THE DHARMA OF JAMES BALDWIN
To ask questions of the universe, and then learn to live with those questions, is the way he achieves his own identity.
James Baldwin was one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. In works that have become classics —Another Country, Giovanni’s Room, and The Fire Next Time—he explored issues of race, sexual, and class distinctions in America. However, most people are not aware of James Baldwin as a spiritual visionary, one who understood the realm of universal consciousness and sounded more like a mystic, a Buddhist monk, or an Indian sadhu; a being who grappled with three questions: How does one attain autonomy and authenticity? What does it mean to be human? What is the spiritual destiny of all beings?
Please contact me if you would like to explore Baldwin's work as a “spirit field,” a space filled with questions, contradictions, compassion, and the power of love. A unique enhancement to racism/diversity/inclusion trainings and spiritual retreats.
