Occupy the Dharma Punx

Yesterday, Wednesday, Photographer/Writer Cat Gwynn and Sacred Activist Laura Murphy, also of the folk-fusion duo The 2012s, were guests on my show. We talked about activism, Buddhism, this-ism, that-ism, -ism, -ism, -ism (to quote the prophet John) and last night's "Occupy The Light" rally.  Cat has promised some pictures from the rally at some point, and I will share those here as soon as I get my hands on them.

In the meantime, if you are interested in helping out the homeless in Los Angeles, here at the holidays, or any time of year (we have plenty of homeless, and we're currently making more, so they'll need help year round for a while), here is a list of agencies and organizations that Laura provided me with, and that we all agreed would be great to share with all of you.

To help in Los Angeles:

•   LAMP Community
•   LA CAN
•   Beyond Shelter
•   Union Rescue
•   Los Angeles Mission
•   Downtown Women's Shelter
•   Homeless Los Angeles California: Shelters and Resources

And if you are interested in continuing the efforts of Occupy LA, please go to the Occupy Los Angeles website or to this additional OLA's website.

Thanks to both of these thoughtful and intelligent ladies for gracing my show with their presence.  I look forward to hearing more from both of them in the future!
