What are the chances of this being a picture of the rising star in the spiritual publishing world, the hilarious non-teacher, and fabulously invisible, Jed McKenna?
For those of you who don't know, there are these hysterically funny, heart-breakingly ass-kicking, face smacking waking up trilogy of books (see righthand sidebar) written by a teacher that doesn't exist. He teaches no workshops, does no sessions. He gives no interviews, sells no bells or prayer mats or cosmic love goggles off of a super-hip, flashmedia site. There is no record of the guy. No pictures, no leaks in terms of bio, no people stepping forward to claim him or rat him out or mistakenly spill the garbanzos. Nada. (at least as far back as I've been googling.)
But because I have mentioned his name in posts several times, people show up here from search engines several times a day searching out info about him, and in backtracking on one of them, I came upon the pic above.

* Back in 2007 I got an advance copy of Spiritual Warfare, and in return, I sent Wisefool Press the tale of how my own Human Torch got lit. They printed it on their review page for the SW release. It begins about halfway down the page and starts with "Four years ago I was a joyful granolahead . . . ".
* If Brother Jed had a Cafe Press Site, these are what the t-shirts would say.
