Camp Satyagraha - Monastery in Maine

Host Todd Peterson says:

I was a professional with a lot of money, a beautiful wife, and a 3.75 gpa in my graduate program at UMUC in Maryland.   I was on my way up.  But I wasn't happy.    

I left everything and drove to northern Maine in 2009 intent on leaving the "robot world".    I was planning on writing a book then, "How I left the Robot World and became Independently Poor."    Now that is just  a chapter in the book.    I had realized that 'wealth' was  a relative concept and your wealth beggars your neighbor. So I decided the operational word was 'independent'.   and poor more moral than wealthy, and certainly more  attainable.   

The story beyond that  gets lost in myth and superstition... really, really, really, crazy.. wild and crazy as anything anyone ever told... as far as i can tell.   I bought a few acres... and the rest is history..
