Mary Aigner's Departure

Mary Aigner, Program Director for KZYX&Z, recently announced that she has decided it is time, after 22 years, to hand over the reins. She has some interesting opportunities that she wishes to explore, though she will continue to be involved with the radio station, including hosting her "Dead Air" program. As she told the volunteer programmers and her friends:

"It's been a great pleasure and an honor to work here, and I can't think of a more interesting or gratifying place to work. I'm constantly amazed by your talent, passion, and commitment to the cause of creating the best community radio we can, in service of the people of Mendocino County." 

We wish Mary great success in her future endeavors. We will miss her.

In this program, aired on July 8, 2013, I talk with Susan Moon and Sue Ellen Parkinson. You can listen to the program online or download it to your computer or portable device here:


Sue Ellen Parkinson handles outreach and events at The Mariposa Institute in Ukiah, about the mission and upcoming events of this local retreat facility. A former school, The Mariposa Institute now conducts local and regional educational programs with a mission to "promote a humane, equitable, sustainable and regenerative human culture that can coexist on this earth in harmony with all life."  

The Mariposa Institute is starting a series "Transformation Through the Arts"with a workshop titled "Writing From the Heart" for all levels of writers on Sunday, July 14th with Susan Moon, author and lay Zen Teacher. 

I talk with Susan Moon about her work. Susan Moon is a writer and teacher and for many years was editor of Turning Wheel, the journal of socially engaged Buddhism. She is the author of The Life and Letters of Tofu Roshi, about an imaginary Zen master, and editor of Not Turning Away: The Practice of Engaged BuddhismHer short stories and essays have been published widely. Her most recent book is This Is Getting Old: Zen Thoughts on Aging with Dignity and Humor

Susan has been a Zen student since 1976, practicing in the lineage of Suzuki Roshi at Berkeley Zen Center, Tassajara Zen Mountain Monastery, Green Gulch Farm, and now with Zoketsu Norman Fischer’s Everyday Zen sangha. She received “entrustment” as a lay teacher in 2005. At the end of the year, she has a new book coming out: The Hidden Lamp: Stories from 25 Centuries of Awakened Women, that Susan Moon edited with Zenshin Florence Caplow.
