STILL WITHOUT INTERNET

At the moment David and Adam are still without the internet. They bought a new modem but unfortunate this is not working either. I think that soon some help from Oasis (Annette and Patrick) will arrive. So for the moment no daily teachings...

SIXTEEN DAYS TO COUNT

Posted on June 7, 2016 at 22:25 2 Comments

Everyday it is going a bit better. I stroll around on my crutches. I am staying in the 'Bartholomeus Gasthuis' in Utrecht. This is quite a unique place, in many ways. It was the second place my insurance company offered. It was not hard to decide to go to this place. Almost exactly a year ago I was here for the first time, because I went to a special retreat-weekend, a weekend with... David Brazier... I met David for the first time, here in this 'guesthouse'. In recent years David has been…

Medicine Buddha

Posted by Satya Robyn on April 24, 2017 at 13:57 0 Comments

Colleague Buddhists - I'm getting to know Medicine Buddha as I haven't met him before and he's come into my life at just the right time.

Anything you'd be willing to share about your personal relationship with him / stories/ facts / books etc. I'd be very grateful. Deep bow.

Wrong

I am about to do, or have already done, something wrong,
