Regulator Bookshop: The Spiritual Power of the Imagination

( Thu., May. 16, 2019 )

Performed by Norman Fischer

Regulator Bookshop, 720 Ninth Street, Durham, NC 27705


The Regulator welcomes Norman Fischer, author of The World Could Be Otherwise: Imagination and the Bodhisattva Path, for a reading and book signing. In frightening times, we wish the world could be otherwise. With a touch of imagination, it can be. In this inspiring reframe of a classic Buddhist teaching, Zen teacher Norman Fischer writes that the “six perfections”—generosity, ethical conduct, patience, joyful effort, meditation, and understanding—can help us reconfigure the world we live in. Fischer depicts imaginative spiritual practice as a necessary resource for our troubled times.
