A book talk, discussion and Q&A with Timber Hawkeye, author of Buddhist Boot Camp and Faithfully Religionless.
When his pursuit of happiness in Corporate America feels counterproductive, Timber Hawkeye escapes the fluorescent-lit hell of his cubicle in Seattle, and sets out to fully embrace the stress-free lifestyle of Hawaii. Intrigued and curious about what people believe (and why they believe what they do), he questions everything he ever thought was true, and discovers the beauty of letting go.

"It's not that I'm against religion, I simply don't have one (nor do I believe that we need it to be ethical). My faith is doctrine-free, with a definition of God that doesn't conjure a white man in the sky who dispenses blessings for good behavior and harsh judgements to condemn the bad. That's because I don't believe God does that; religion does. You see, faith is a spiritual practice of continually letting go of uncertainty, of ego, and of the underlying need to know, while religion is a ceremonial tradition of hanging on, clinging to concrete dogmas, stubborn rigidity, and ageless ritual."
Timber Hawkeye offers a secular and non-sectarian approach to being at peace with the world, both within and around us. Author of the international bestseller Buddhist Boot Camp, his intention is to awaken, enlighten, enrich and inspire.
