Rick will talk about his personal spiritual awakening story, starting with his childhood, his learning to meditate in 1968, and his years as a meditation teacher.  He will describe his inspiration and motivation to start Buddha at the Gas Pump in 2009.  He’ll also share insights and experiences he’s had while doing this now very popular spiritually focused podcast.

Rick will also talk about the Association for Spiritual Integrity, which he helped found. Rick’s presentation will be interactive. He will invite questions throughout rather than just take them near the end.

Join us for this live, online event. There will be a Question & Answer period with the talk.

Photo or Rick Archer of Buddha at the Gas PumpRick Archer is the creator and host of the interview show Buddha at the Gas Pump. Since the Fall of 2009, he has since interviewed over 700 “spiritually awakening” people, from the well-known to the unknown, from a variety of backgrounds and traditions.

Rick learned Transcendental Meditation when he was 18, was trained by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as a TM teacher in 1970, and served in that capacity for 25 years, teaching hundreds of people, lecturing around the world, helping to train TM teachers, and serving at the international headquarters of the TM organization in Switzerland. He earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Vedic Studies from Maharishi International University.

Rick is no longer associated with the TM organization, having become too eclectic and independent in his perspective to affiliate exclusively with any organization. He is a founder and advisor of the Association for Spiritual Integrity.
