Gideon Jacobs is a writer who has been exploring guided meditation as both an ancient spiritual technology and as a format for immersive fiction.
At its most basic, this could be seen as parallel explorations of the grammatical device of the imperative mood. A great reading experience, like a great meditative experience, requires at least some surrendering of agency, some relinquishing of control. The proverbial guru and author have more in common than we might think.
Join us for early evening meditations led by Gideon, some of which will be more traditional exercises meant to anchor you in reality, some of which will be pieces he has written in this particular style for publications like Buffalo Zine, Office Magazine, Autre, and more.
