Guru Rugu and the experimental meditation center of los angeles present:
An evening of experimental meditation
- – - – -
Please join Guru Rugu and the experimental meditation center of los angeles in the great city of St. Louis for an evening of experimental meditation and inspiration.
The experimental meditation center of los angeles (emcla) is a frame[work], a magic circle, a safe space, a temporary autonomous zone, a performance space for the facilitation of artist-led meditations. Activities at emcla differ from session to session, each featuring new artist-facilitators and practices. They favor the playful, the experimental, and the temporary over the fanatical, dogmatic, and proselytic, gentleness over violence or aggressiveness, and seek to reinforce the magical and connective undertakings we artists are already engaging with on a daily basis. The experimental meditation center of los angeles has no center, though these days it often convenes at the home of Adam Overton.
Guru Rugu is a celebrated best-selling self-published self-helper from Los Angeles who has changed the lives of millions with his simple but effective experimental meditations. He has worked with many other illustrious experimental healers, artists, and writers, including Veranda Moot and Matador Oven. Guru Rugu has been helping “turn your desperation into inspiration” since 1955 when he helped co-found the Los Angeles Meditation Ghostwriters Guild Local #012, where he still serves as Chief Meditating Officer (CMO) and Intern Coordinator. In 1971, Guru Rugu helped co-found the experimental meditation center of los angeles—which has no center—with artist Adam Overton. Since 2010, Guru Rugu has worked intimately with Signify, Sanctify, Believe, a cute crew of religious technologists and publishing anarchivists hearkening from Los Angeles. Guru Rugu currently hosts Guru Rugu’s Experimental Meditation Hour on KCHUNG Radio AM1630 every 1st Sunday from 10-11pm and archived at http://gururugu.kchungradio.org/. He also provides inspirational tweets nearly every day at http://twitter.com/GuruHRugu. Though not formally acknowledged, it is well-known that Guru Rugu was the inspiration behind Matador Oven’s provocative and influential tract, A Dabblerist Manifesto.
