Hello Grailking, I could not agree with you more about Alan Watts. Joseph Campbell and Alan Watts were close friends who, as you note, enjoyed each other's company. Chungliang Al Huang, who co-authored Alan Watts' last book - Tao, The Watercourse Way - also collaborated with Joe at Esalen, and is a...

Ah, yes ... reading these posts, feels like my brain is enjoying a happy massage. Just moments before opening an email from Michael to David and me about Tony's question, I had read and responded to an email from David sharing a marvelous quote he had just gleaned from Sake and Satori , which place...

Lots of good things. For example, Joseph Campbell's short stories are being published this month in a volume called Mythic Imagination.

You are indeed doing your part, Carmela - and more than just moral support.

Thank you so much for your commitment.

It's particularly powerful coming from someone familiar, from an external perspective, with what happens in the brain and being able to sync that with personal interior experience - but even if she weren't a brain scientist, her account would still be fascinating. Jill Bolte Taylor's story of her tr...

Hi Cindy, Frankly, I do not know. Theoretically, it should be as easy as visiting any page on the website, but you'll just be able to read, not comment. We don't want to lose the content of thousands of messages posted by Associates over the years; unfortunately, with the content management system w...

We are working on it - a tedious process upgrading a site with such depth (lots of "back stage" needs, digitally preserving 1100 hours of Campbell's lectures, keeping track of the status of all editions, in and out of print, and monitoring and tracking countless agreements with small publishers in d...

I am spoiled by Facebook, Clemsy - I keep trying to click the "Like" button! No better introduction for students to poetry exists, in my experience - if only we were all such inspiring teachers as John Keating (as played by Robin Williams)! The brilliance lies in how the plot connects poetic imagery...

Welcome to the randomness that telegraphs the need for a site upgrade. Our current CMS stopped supporting phpbb, which doesn't allow us to upgrade CoHO. Without an upgrade, random weirdness occurs - and if we do nothing, just try to maintain the status quo and plug holes as they appear, things will ...

We haven't done anything to CoHO. The Contributions area is first (we are facing an external deadline). No idea what is up with avatars - I'll pass it along to Mark, but it's far from highest priority right now, as long as people can post. Mark is working at his day job 50 hours a week, and managing...

Now that's unsettling, Cindy - when weirdness comes and goes, it's usually a sign of something else afoot. At least we have a heads up and will be on the lookout.

Thanks, Stephen

Many Thanks to David Kudler, Mark Oppenneer, Carol Gunby, and Michael Lambert - our own Clemsy, who was the first to alert us - for identifying the problem and determining a solution. The trigger for the site collapse was a runaway error debugger filling a cache folder with error log entries that i...
