We shall do more.

I’ve always been interested in groupwork. Recently I’ve been facilitating a rather challenging group. It includes an older man who is enjoying his retirement, an outdoor type who does not say so much but clearly regards the other members as wimps, a writer who has an irritating obsession with etymology, one I think of as the wanderer whose life problem seems to be that of never having learnt to settle down, who tells endless entertaining stories of travels, love affairs and so on, and I was…

It was good to be part of the talk and discussion. A unique experience from my kitchen in Tel Aviv as I prepare to fix our family dinne. I look forward to more !

Thanks for your invitation.

Thank you

Noble practice then: with confidence , at ease. Well centered. With an upaya to suite the person and situation, definitely not merely 方便 approach. But I cheat, for I am reading your book and still grappling with your mention of upaya: I had not dwelled on that one until your message. But I meant Upeksha - perhaps a good concept to associate with noble ?

I am wondering what characters render XinJin and AnJin - perhaps I can then locate the original Chan terms

 hoşbulduk, Baruch Hanimza” : both Hebrew and Turkish have developed apt responses to “Welcome”, perhaps each loosely rendered as “glad to be here “ and “Blessed is he/she already there”. Possibly in English that could be “Well Arrived” 。I have yet to find the Buddhist or Chinese response , so 全心欢迎您的回答 (“Whole hearted welcome Your response )

Thank you,  I will try to join, at least single days if it's possible. For the next workshops during 2018 in Korea I will work out my attendance in a more relaxed way!

Twice Istarted Italian lessons but could not continue through circomstances. You make me feel wanting to learn it again. Then I could understand one of my favourite films in it's original language!

La meglio gioventù (2003)  a film from Marco Tullio Giordana. 

At 21:23 on March 2, 2018, Alex Mancini said…

Sure David! It was a pleasure to meet you and to have those, always interesting, conversations. Have a good trip back to France. Cheers!
