We are pleased to announce that an exclusive feature excerpt of Alan Clements in Conversation with the Venerable Sayadaw U Pandita will run in the November/Winter issue of Tricycle Magazine - The Buddhist Review. The piece is titled "The Requisites of Reconciliation" 

The entire 22,000 word "Final Words of the late Venerable Sayadaw U Pandita" will be published in the forthcoming book "Aung San Suu Kyi and Burma's Voices of Freedom, Conversations with Alan Clements."

We are also leaning towards publishing the Final Words of Sayadaw U Pandita as a stand alone book late this Fall or early into the new year. Towards that goal, if you would like to volunteer to help us publish this work we need a talented editor, copy editor, graphic designer, photo, audio and video editors, and a great publicist would be awesome. Donations are also welcome to help us see this work to completion.

YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED Our focus is on ‘raising international awareness’ of freedom, global human rights, nonviolence, and environmental sanity and their merger with creativity and freedom of expression. We have worked for over two decades supporting Aung SanSuu Kyi and Burma’s ongoing struggle for democracy. If you wish to offer a one-time or ongoing contribution towards our work it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, sincerely.
Invite Alan Clements to speak. Let us know your thoughts.
“How to describe Alan’s presentations? A tall order. Love poems/riffs/odes/chants to the goddesses of compassion, deeply inscribed with the blood of Burmese slaves, soldiers in Iraq, Palestinian children, freedom fighters anywhere. A momentary entry into an internal tête-à-tête, ad infinitum; a glimpse at all that inner discursive dialog which marks us unequivocally as members of the human race. Just in case we get too spiritual, let’s not forget that we are required to, by nature, include everything. To paraphrase the Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hahn’s poem, “Please Call Me by My True Names,” I am both the 12-year-old raped girl and the pirate who raped her. It is difficult to reconcile seeming opposites, and it takes the heart of a poet. Thich Nhat Hahn is a poet; Alan is one as well.” —Marcia Jacobs, a psychotherapist specializing in victims of war, rape, and trauma; a senior U.N. representative for refugees in Bosnia and Croatia, 1993–1997; and a former officer of the International War Crimes Tribunal
