📖 - Welcome to the Cookbook for a Sacred Life

Hi everyone, I am in central Arkansas. I love Ram Dass’s teachings and also follow Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield in their mindfulness programs.



Woo! Philly! I’m up in Fishtown. Have you been to the satsang in West Chester? I haven’t yet.

Hi everyone, Takara here from Cape Breton Island, Canada, in the Atlantic Ocean.
I’ve been reading Be Here Now and listening to Ram Dass’s lectures for about a decade now, I found him through the Duncan Trussel Family Hour podcast. Reading the brown pages of Be Here Now, with the East Forest album with Ram Dass has become my go-to when I’m overwhelmed. I haven’t really dove into the cookbook and I’m really excited to with this course! I’d love to end this 21 weeks with an improved daily practice.


Hello everyone! My name is Katrina and I live in Idaho. I’ve been casually listening to Ram Dass for about 7 years, but really in this last year his messages have resonated in a very profound way and helped to open my heart to new possibilities. I’ve never been part of a community with like-minded people, and I am very excited about this experience and hopefully meeting some great people!

Yes!! Such a blessings and such an inspiration. So glad you are here!


[quote=“Zac_Townsend, post:29, topic:54”] 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!

Hi Zac! Thank you for sharing this! Yes, I’ve heard stories dozens and dozens of times and they still hit home and sometimes I get a new layer.

And I’m glad Duncan brought you this way! Such a gift!

Let us soak away together…the hot tub of love as RD talks about!
