Richard Rose – Video Talks & Lectures
Richard Rose was a down-to-earth mystic, poet, esoteric philosopher and Zen adept from the hills of West Virginia. He reached thousands of people via his lectures across the U.S. over two decades, and worked directly with a group of about 100 dedicated students.

university students visiting the Rose farm and former TAT retreat center in West
Virginia. The two-DVD set (232 minutes) contains sequences from university
lectures and informal discussions interspersed with impressions of first-time
visitors and reminiscences of long-time students.
