Alan Clements has lived a life of social activist and dharma teacher.
As activists, we sometimes get a bit preoccupied with the news of the day, with
this or that fact or issue. At least for many people, stepping back,
taking a deep breath, and considering spiritualism behind social activism is a
good thing. On this score, Alan Clements has much insight.
He was on KPFK's
Innervision show with Michael
Benner on November 14th, and I thought I'd toss up an MP3 file of the
show. They talked quite a bit about his experience with activists in Burma
and Yugoslavia, and about the ideas he fleshed out in his new book, Instinct
For Freedom: Finding Liberation Through Living. He took inspiration for the first part of the title from Noam Chomsky.
The show runs for about an
hour and the first three minutes are a musical introduction. The MP3 file is about 10 megabytes.
