Thank you for joining along Jeremy! I hope you love the course.

Did you know there is a robust Ram Dass Fellowship community in Atlanta? You can find out more if you search “Atlanta” on the Fellowship Finder map here if you’d like to connect more with local satsang near you: Fellowship • Ram Dass

We love the manatees. I volunteer at Three Sisters Springs where the manatees come in the winter months. It got really warm here last week and most of them swam back out to the Gulf of Mexico already.

Namaste my fellow Sadhaks,

Glad to be on this part of the journey with you. Bought Be Here Now after a psychosis (Or spiritual awakening?) at a meditation retreat in Bali. I was spiraling out of control until I was able to grasp the alternate state of consciousness again with a psychedelic substance. After that researched everything I could find about psychedelics which brought me to Richard Alpert and his work with Timothy Leary at Harvard. Their story from rational (Harvard professors of psychology) to completely against the status quo fascinated me and the rest is history. I know in my heart that they explored something which closely fits within the truth of reality and never looked back since then.

Greetings from Amsterdam, NL! Aum Shanti shanti shanti

Hi everyone! Im Zac from Eugene Oregon. Nice to see we’ve already got a few people excited and signed up for this course. Got into Ram Dass awhile ago via Duncan Trussell’s enthusiastic and glowing discussions about him and then my interest just expanded since then. I have read Be Here Now. My intention is to deepen my practice, and just soak in and really enjoy these teachings. Ive found no matter if Ive heard a Ram Dass story once or a thousand times before, it finds me at just the right moment in time and applies perfectly to what Im going through in my life. The teachings really are magical. I’m looking forward to this course and interacting with everyone here!

Hello - I am from Morgantown, West Virginia, USA. The Mountain State. I own operate and live at a mini-marina on the Monongahela River.
I’m 68yo, and I’ve been practicing yoga for decades. I also started Kundalini Yoga with LFA 2 years ago… which is heavy into meditations, and presence, and Buddhist philosophy of loving kindness.
I’ve known of Ram Dass for many decades, but since I’m not much of an avid reader, have not read the book Be Here Now.
I am just returning from 6 weeks in India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand - eye and heart opening.
My intention with this course is to make the most of the present moments and to connect with like-minded people in this wild world, especially nearby.

Hi there,

My name is Corey and I live in Brevard, NC (outside of Asheville).

I started listening to podcasts on the Be Here Now network in early 2016 and they literally saved my mind and opened my heart and my life. I am so grateful for all the people dedicated to sharing the legacy of Ram Dass and all the other spiritual teachers he inspired. The love, joy and compassion that I’ve experienced and witnessed in others is incredible. And I’ve had really hard times too.

Thank you all for being here and I’m looking forward to sharing this journey with you all. My intention is to deepen my practice and be a part of this satsung as there isn’t one in my small town. :peace_symbol: :heart: :pray:

Hello ~ Patty from Philly. I am on a journey of seeking more acceptance of self and others and continued self awareness and how I contribute to community, society, my clients, students, family & friends. I am also at the best place I have ever been on this journey, long way to go but have also come a long way. Thank you so much for offering this. I have not yet read Be Here Now!

Hello -

My name is Crystal and I live in New Hill, NC (outside of Raleigh, NC).

My introduction to Ram Dass came from watching Becoming Nobody. Over the past year I have begun listening to Ram Dass Here and Now Podcast and the Mindrolling Podcast with Raghu Markus. I have not read Be Here Now and looking forward to this experience!

I am so grateful for these resources the LSRF has made available to us. Thank you!
