Phil Goldberg will give a talk about his new book, just out from Doubleday, "American Veda: From Emerson and The Beatles to Yoga and Meditation, How Indian Spirituality Changed the West". This will be a fun talk about Goldberg's look into the popular history of how Hinduism has influenced American culture, in the past and right now. The talk will be followed by a book signing. This event is co-sponsored by the Academic Studies Department at MECA, The Chaplaincy Institute of Maine, Sadhana Meditation Center, and Longfellow Books. The talk will be held in Osher Hall on March 28 at 7pm. Admission is free.
