“Fire Monks” News

Though Colleen Morton Busch, author of Fire Monks: Zen Mind Meets Wildfire at the Gates of Tassajara, doesn’t consider herself an expert in anything, she will be answering, on videotape for Mahalo, questions posted at this link. Book CoverShe says, “I’m eager to respond to questions about Zen practice, practicing with wildfire, how and why I wrote the book, or anything else under the sun.”

So post your questions and see what Colleen has to say.

Also, see an article, “How To Decide By Not Deciding” by Colleen in the August 18, 2011, Huffington Post.

UPDATE: The video interview with Colleen at Mahalo has been postponed. But you can post questions for her here (see her note below). [2011 08 22]

    What happened to the reddit post, did it get “redacted” for a specific reason? Also, why did you post on /r/AmA/ (which has WAY less subscribers and upkeep) and not /r/IAmA?

      Good questions, C! I’ll see what I can find out.

        Hi, C, it seems the producer at Mahalo doing the interview on Sunday initiated the post to Reddit AMA.

        Maybe it was posted to AMA instead of to IAMA because they thought it was a more appropriate context — a smaller subreddit, “less noisy and more intimate”? I’ve emailed the poster to find out why the content of the initial post was removed. Seems odd, right? I also emailed Colleen.

        Thanks again for the note!

    I’m not sure what’s happening on the tech side, but I just heard from the producer at Mahalo that they are postponing the interview, which they were going to do over the web, in favor of hopefully doing an in-studio interview at a later date. If you have questions that you were going to submit, please email them to me at colleen@colleenmortonbusch.com and I will try to either blog about them or to include them if/when the studio interview with Mahalo happens.
