because I want you to have a very large, beautiful life
wherein you contemplate very large, beautiful things
to go straightway to the The CiRCE Institute website
-------do not pass GO do not collect two hundred dollars just go for Pete's sake------
and take advantage of Andrew Kern's brain-tingling offer:
Make any size donation to The CiRCE Institute (always a worthy cause), and they will give you access to a bundle of CiRCE conference lectures.
This is the deal of the year, people! I paid for mine. And I would do it again. I mean, seriously, I keep going back to the site to make sure I read it right. And I did. Yep, it's still there. I just checked again. It still says they will give you these lectures for any size donation. Crazy.
So that is my general plea. Now here's a more specific bit of begging:
Please do not miss Andrew Kern's profound, amazing talk entitled "A Contemplation of Nature."
No, it's not about nature, as in "Oh, let's take a lovely nature walk." It's about... Everything.
I'm guessing some of you will go donate a dollar just to hear this talk, and then you'll go back afterward and donate more when you realize how much more it was worth to you.
Actually, I just told my family last week that I would like to buy several dozen copies of this lecture CD and give it to everyone I know. Stick them in stockings. My neighbors' mailboxes. Mail them instead of Christmas cards. I dunno. I just know it's one of the top five lectures I've ever heard in my life, and I'm kind of a lecture junkie.
I listened to it with Claire a few weeks ago, and we've talked about it so much that the rest of the family and more than a few of our friends have decided they are going to have to listen to it to be able to have a decent conversation with us anytime soon.
Umm, you're still here. Go, please? Oh and hey, then come back and we can talk about it.
