Dave Hall Landscape Art: I am moved by the half-light of dawn and dusk, and my paintings are inspired by…

Paintings for Sale. Art inspired by work and travel by retired Ambassador Richard Erdman ’67,


A Request: I graduated from Princeton in 1968 with a B.A. magna cum laude in Art and Archaeology. After two years of writing art criticism in New York for Art News Magazine, I went on to devote my life to an independent inquiry into the role of the body in the transformation of consciousness. It was necessary to embark on this journey independently as there were no university departments at the time that I could join to pursue this inquiry. Over the years I’ve written eleven books—many about the role of the body in Buddhist meditation, many others about the 13th century Sufi poet Rumi—several of which have been translated into multiple languages. Even though I am an “outlier” in both the academic and Buddhist worlds (I never affiliated myself with any one Buddhist tradition, but preferred to focus on the denominator common to all of them: the physical posture of sitting meditation), I am now routinely invited into Buddhist centers to help the students transform their experience of sitting meditation from one of struggle, pain, and bracing into one of grace, ease, joy even. My wife and I are now wanting to move to Costa Rica to build a modest retreat centre where sincere meditation practitioners can come and enter into three week self-retreat that I can guide and monitor, completely on a donation basis. I’m looking to raise $250,000 to continue this next phase of my work, and I thought to share my story with a university community that has consistently valued independent and creative thought. If there is anyone out there interested in supporting this project, would you please contact me by email at or by phone at 250-746-7618.
