There haven’t been many people that i’ve written often about on this blog – but a few times, over the last few months, I’ve written about Robert Rabbin.
I didn’t know him well (or really much at all). I wrote to Robert after listening to one of his great interviews, and reading a few chapters from a few of his books, and ended up chatting with him a bit on Facebook about Mindfulness, living authentically, and doing great work in the world.
(we even had a strange serendipitous moment when a random member of a private FB group we both belong to – shared her favorite quotes from one of his recent books – and it was the exact set of words i had written down myself, on my IPHONE, while on a late night (slow) run through town, roughly the same time the night before)
I’m super sad to learn that Robert Rabbin passed away over the last few days. He seemed healthy and wise.
Vital and strong.
Alive and awake.
Playful and profound – and without the usual pretense that burdens many who write about finding magic and meaning in the world.
I didn’t know Robert at all – and yet, the little bit I did know – mostly his words and his work – and his personal warmth, in some strange way, has left a lasting mark.
Robert joined our beta list for MindfulMarketplace.com a month or two ago – and i never got around to processing his membership request. I just checked what he shared on the little “why do you want to join” page – and not surprisingly, he had much more to say than most 🙂
RIP Robert. You will be missed – but your words will continue to inspire.
