About the Book
Fast forward a decade or so, and michael has once immersed himself in his passion of the written word and image. Taking the form of a long poem highlighted by some of his most recent photographic images exploring the authentic brilliance of Portland’s, Iconic Japanese Garden in Washington Park, Oregon. USA.
Soulatude is a book. But it’s not a regular, everyday book. Soulatude references a non-dual perspective; a dynamic exploration of Self-As-Soul. Page by page, Soulatude deconstructs core perceptions and projections, so easily entertained by so many worn-out, progressive paths.
Soulatude is the cross examination of ideas we have learned about self, soul and life, it’s the revelation and affirmation of - not the soul we imagine or have been taught about, but the Self and Soul We-Already-Always-Are. Soulatude invites You-As-Awareness - to investigate with precision, the illusion of conventional reality, to strip away the layers of confusion and projection; to reveal what was already Here and already/always available. THIS.

It is the artist, free thinker, poet, advocate and friend, who has inspired this life I call my own. With image and word, in private practice, one-on-one or group facilitation, and service, that I have touched meaning, purpose and peace; something magical that lies beyond the thinking mind. It is through one-on-one indulgence of great cups of coffee and engaged conversation, the experience and expression of creativity, the silence of meditation, or the activity of snowboarding, that I have felt freedom and simplicity, that lies in the Art of Being… www.twitter.com/zenshredding
