He is a longtime yoga teacher, a newly minted legal professional, and a veteran of the Enlightenment Projects. This year, he will limit his focus to poems that response to the 32 "beads" of the Diamond Sutra (aka "the Diamond Cutter"), a profound and deliberately constructed dialectical text that uses language as a means of peeling back the layers of the mind.

 id·e·o·gram is a collaborative project that investigates interconnection, narrative, and personal experiences. Each day, for the duration of thirty days, each individual will create an ideogram with paper, brush, and black ink that best expresses one’s internal reality. Every week all seven ideograms will be exchanged altogether between participating individuals and be woven by string into a visual semiotic structure, creating a poetic representation of another person. Thus, each individual engages in a non-verbal dialogue that invokes an exploration of empathic intelligence by creating meaning through visual symbolism, relationship, and empathic understanding.
