You are not going to want to miss this evening! Two legendary names: BERT HERMAN and GAYLE RUBIN come together to take a stroll through the life and times of Bert Herman. Join us for a live, interactive, and free-wheeling conversation with the legendary Bert Herman, author of the definitive book, “Trust: The Handbook.” Bert will be joining us live via Skype from his vacation condo on Maui.
Bert Herrman grew up in the suburbs of New York City. He holds a BS degree in finance from the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School and an MS in journalism from Ohio University. He started his career in corporate public relations in Philadelphia. But after 15 years, his mainstream life took a few dramatic turns and he found himself a gay book publisher in San Francisco and a dedicated student of Zen.
Over 14 years in San Francisco, Bert edited and published 18 books, authoring two of them. His book, TRUST/The Hand Book: A Guide to the Sensual and Spiritual Art of Handballing, combined Bert’s years of experience and knowledge of fisting with his mystical insights as a Zen Buddhist.
Today, Bert and his life partner Guy have a bed & breakfast and spiritual sanctuary in the Manzano Mountains of New Mexico, escaping in the winters to the sunny island of Maui.
