Sharing the Conversation
By Jonathan Wichmann

After we read a life-changing book, most of us tell our friends about it. Sometimes we bring it to a book group to discuss it with others. But how many of us record that conversation and share it online?

Nate Bettger did just that with Bill Plotkin's Nature and the Human Soul. The director of community for Mandala Yoga Community in Bend, Oregon, Nate created podcasts from group discussions he organized through the center's weekly community gathering. Excited by Nate's unique way of sharing and exploring Plotkin's work, I decided to ask him a few questions for our blog. Enjoy!
