She also forwarded me an email detailing a new tv show being produced, called Seekers:—
TV Personality Ralph Benmergui (used to work for CBC) is seeking 5 seekers willing to go on the spiritual road trip of a lifetime.
SEEKERS will be a new faith-based lifestyle/documentary series to air in a six-part series for VisionTV and ONE: The Body, Mind & Spirit Channel.
Five diverse Canadians chosen will be invited to join Benmergui on what producers bill as an unpredictable three-week journey to spiritual hotspots across North America - from Tibetan Meditation under a crystal pyramid in Sedona, Arizona to Shamanistic healing on Cortes Island BC.
The casting assistant, a woman named Lorraine Houston, has called me a couple times and emailed me. I will try to get in touch with her in the next few days. I figure it might be an interested experience — and that I may be their token troublemaker. Let’s say they get together a fucking Christian, Jew, Muslim, maybe a so-called Buddhist or something, and then there’ll be me: a happy rep for everything that is evil to them. Even some Western Buddhist, I could find something to offend. Perhaps explore the Dzogchen. Hell, I even made a Reiki master cry months ago using philosophical examples of rape and depravity in some conversation we were having.
Not much to be proud of, if I think about it actually. Regardless, it’d be fun. I need a vacation.
