WEEP FOR OUR WORLD

Posted on August 20, 2019 at 21:38 3 Comments



At the moment I am feeling very sad for the state of the planet. As I write the great forests are being consumed by fire, both the tropical forest in Brazil and the tundra forest in Russia. The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 10 Comments

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

SUCCESSFUL FIRST ELEUSIS SEMINAR

Posted on March 15, 2019 at 16:59 2 Comments

We have just had our first Eleusis Seminar on the theme of the Philosophy of Taoism.

Sixteen people took part and from immediate feedback it seems to have been a great success.

We shall do more.

There is a second meeting of a more open kind this evening.

Hi David

Schedule-dependent, I'd like to be part of a weekly online group meeting. I went for refuge over 20 years ago with Karma Kagyu, and I've had exposure to different traditions as I've moved around the UK since, depending on where I've found the nearest sangha - Gaia House, Longchen, and most recently I've co-organised a vaguely Thich Nhat Hanh influenced neighbourhood sitting group in Tooting.  
I'm thinking about the next big step now - traditionally the Boddhisattva Vow, I suppose - but keen to learn more about your insights, on the back of reading the Feeling Buddha.

You asked if I identify with being a wanderer. I do.

I met the idea when I was a Christian. I trained with a monastery for the priesthood, and learned to practice what we called contemplative prayer. I chanced upon a classic of the Orthodox practice of Jesus Prayer, called ‘The Way of the Pilgrim’, and the particular term Strannik in Catherine Doherty’s novelette by that title (her book Poustinia is better known), and the idea struck with me.

I have since left working In the ministry for the CofE, and think I’m more of a Tolstoyan, politically, but was interested in training in existential therapy, though came across Buddhist therapy and your work the feeling Buddha excited me hence I found your site.

Thank you for the invitation, David. I hope you will get better soon. I just had Karin visiting at my holiday home in Holland. We talked about the ITZI conference. I look forward to attend. (Still need to register.) Cheers!

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 !
