    Should the truth not be free? Why charge so much for something that you believe can actually help society?
    Sounds like a lie

      Dear Micha,

      Jack Kornfield speaks at lots of places. Some are based on a sliding scale fee. If you volunteer to help, sometimes you can attend for free. Look up his web site.

    If you go into a thing thinking it is a lie, it will be for you. God Bless You in your search.
