Conversations with Mother India: A Sabbatical in Asia

I came back from a month in India with a new and living perspective on my life and on the way I teach about Asia and Eastern religion.

Also attached to the “Personal Thoughts” page are some videos that more graphically narrate what I presented in Conversations with Mother India.

A visit to Mother India’s architectural jewel in the searing heat of 110 degrees!

Reconnecting the Threads Podcast

How can we think and dialogue constructively about problems that undermine our solidarity in the community? Professors Mark Whitters and Dan Propson interview guests who tell us about topics like spirituality without religion, loneliness in an age of instant chat, homecomings for the homeless, street life and gangs in our neighborhoods. Listening to one another’s stories goes a long way toward reconnecting and making sense of things.
