Thank You, Nathan! A Magnificent Guest Editor

“The next Buddha, the Buddha of the West, will come as the sangha.”

—Thich Nhat Hanh

We want to take a moment today to say thank you and farewell to our latest Guest Editor, the wonderful Nathan G. Thompson!

Nathan has exemplified his own philosophies of horizontal leadership and community building through his engagement with the conversations here on Turning Wheel Media. Never “pulling rank,” he’s always open to discussing differences, finding points of connection in what others are saying, complimenting their contributions, and inviting people into conversations (which occasionally stretch over 100 comments long!). In addition to writing his own essays, he’s also conducted lovely interviews, highlighting the work of fellow engaged Buddhists and non-Buddhist bodhisattvas. It’s been an honor to work with you, Nathan, and I hope we’ll get to meet in person at the BPF 2014, as it materializes!

You can read all of Nathan’s Turning Wheel Media posts and vibrant dialogues here, and catch his other writings at Dangerous Harvests, Life As A Human, and in print in the anthology 21st Century Yoga: Culture, Politics, and Practice.

Palms together, and may we continue to build a broad sangha for the the well-being of all.

    I want to thank Katie, Dawn, and BPF for the opportunity to write and engage here this summer and fall. It’s been a great experience, and has elevated my writing to another level! In addition to the links Katie provided above, you can also find me on Facebook – Nathan G. Thompson is my personal page and Liberate this World contains links to all my writing, plus anything else I find interesting. https://www.facebook.com/LiberateThis

    I’d also like to send a hearty thank you to all those readers who offered comments, engaged the challenging issues I wrote about, and/or simply gave a thumbs up to my articles. I look forward to continuing these conversations with you all here and elsewhere, and hope to be a part of the BPF gathering next year as well!

    I agree with everything you wrote, Katie — Nathan has been an awesome guest editor! I’ve so much appreciated his skillfulness in responding to comments and in using this platform as a teaching tool. Look forward to reading more of Nathan’s insights on his own site and elsewhere!
