I'm a retired Clinical Counsellor, became interested in life coaching, did some training in it but very recently found, I really am more of a counsellor than anything (professionally). Connecting with another at a heart level, is what is most meaningful to me at this point. Most interestingly, without connecting the 2 things, I also thought of David and sent a note to be in touch. After being in touch with him I remembered of course some of the text in his ‘Zen Therapy’ book that makes reference to this…. “Zen is simply the awakening of one heart by another, of sincerity by sincerity’’ (p.13).
I met David in Vancouver, Canada a few times when he was here doing workshops, and we stayed in touch.

Great Intentions.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on August 3, 2017 at 22:42 0 Comments

  • The power of intentions is a topic that comes up regularly for me and always provides me with food for thought. In a recent service I was struck by the gravity of the Bodhisattva vows that we sing as part of our liturgy. ”Innumerable…

Study Group.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on July 18, 2017 at 22:41 1 Comment

We just had a study group meeting at Amida Mandala Temple. Only three of us but a very rich hour. Predictably we came round to the issue of ‘is one Nembutsu enough?’ My understanding: In a sense it is, because when we call Amida we become one with his vow and the Pure Land and thus we are saved. In another sense we have to keep calling him so that he can keep saving us. As if we’re all lost in a thick fog and Amida is a few steps ahead of us illuminating the way, we have to keep him in sight…
