Born Richard Alpert, Ram Dass was a prominent Harvard psychology professor who partnered with Timothy Leary in psychedelic research, and later traveled to India and met his guru, Neem Karoli Baba. Upon returning to the US with his new name, which means “servant of God,” Ram Dass became a pivotal influence on the culture with his groundbreaking book Be Here Now—a backpacker’s bible for a generation of spiritual seekers. In this new definitive memoir, BEING RAM DASS, America's best-known and beloved spiritual teacher, Ram Dass, shares his life story set against the backdrop of eight decades of cultural transformation.

Rameshwar Das, coauthor of BEING RAM DASS will join founder and director of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, Mirabai Bush, in conversation. Both Rameshwar and Mirabai are coauthors and longtime close friends of Ram Dass, having known him for over 50 years.
