Video assembled by Dorje Heavey (John’s son)

John MemorialWho is man?
The reflection of the Eternal Light.
What is the world?
A wave on the Everlasting Sea.
How could the reflection be cut off from the Light?
How could the wave be separate from the Sea?
Know that this reflection and this wave are that very Light and Sea.

John Chick

John Chick passed away today in Denver. He had been diagnosed with brain & lung cancer last November.

This week saw him re-release his book on Cannabis, and to have his three sons with him at the book signing.

His son Dorje had been visiting from Australia the past couple of weeks, helping John ease into hospice.

We will be bringing more of John’s art, and talking about his works over the years.
Lighting a candle for his passing,

Bright Blessings,

Listen for the stream
that tells you one thing.

Die on this bank.
Begin in me
the way of rivers with the sea.
