Book Talk and Workshop

  • InsightLA 1430 Olympic Blvd. Santa Monica, CA 90404 (map)


Zoketsu Norman Fischer returns to InsightLA with this special talk based on his latest work: Experience: on Thinking, Writing, Language and Religion (University of Alabama Press).

Norman will share teachings from this new collection which ranges diverse, fascinating topics such as time, the Heart Sutra, God in the Hebrew psalms, the supreme "uselessness" of art making, "late work" as a category of poetic appreciation, and the subtle and dubious notion of "religious experience." From the theoretical to the revealingly personal, Fischer's essays, interviews, and notes point toward a dramatic expansion of the sense of religious feeling in writing.

Copies will be available for purchase.
