Here and There with Twin Cities Men
I was at the AVP Steering Committee meeting tonight and I told them of the Men's Center Transitions Support Group. There were tears in people's eyes, tears of gratitude. We need something like this to share and it sounds absolutely perfect, thank you for letting us know and thank your organization for making it possible. - Joann Perry, Alternatives to Violence Project, 2017-01-19

"I'm writing you because your name was in the contact list of Gary Van Den Heuvel, and so there might be a chance you would want to know that Gary's autobiography/spiritual memoir Wealth of Shenanigans is finally in print, now almost five years since his death. The book synthesizes Gary's vision by combining memoir, essay, Joycean irrationality, and spiritual insight. It illuminates how an understanding of touch as the foundation of mind can shift how we live. Engaging with his ideas can help us better face the serious challenges of our current situation through a radical shift in our philosophical paradigm. The autobiographical portions are gritty, with no punches pulled, and the philosophical portions give us the opportunity to reexamine our assumptions about reality as well as mid-century America." - Wishing you all the best, Kell Julliard, 2017-02-04
