Hi David and everyone: 

Finally!! The lovely interview you provided for my website http://www.soulsciences.net comes out this Wednesday, June 22 at 10 am EST...about 4 pm your time, right? It was a lively talk you gave, David, sprinkled as always with much wisdom and generous helpings of deep love....thank you!

And David, I have sent the files to you on your email, but with all the flurry since, I'm not sure you have received them. If you'd like I'll resend. Let me know and all my love to you and everyone in this warm, loving community.

Thank you David. I hope you're getting well. Perhaps, will we find a way to see each other this summer.

With kind love, Wangmo

I hope that conditions will make it possible one day to travel to a retreat - that would be quite something!  Meanwhile, thank you for your inspirational teachings on this site.

A message from Fateah in Edinburgh (whose birthday it is today): "Sufis say "Ya Shaffee Ya Kaffee" for healing - may he receive in abundance" "

Thanks for having me! No unfortunately I wasn't in ZCDB when you were there.
I started again last february after a little sabbatical;-)
For me it's all new and I'm eager to learn so I'm thankful to be a member of this network.

Warm regards

Yvette

Thank you, David, I'm enjoying communicating and writing hymns while I'm off work ill. My hymns at the moment are addressing my work problems but I try to turn them around with the Nembutsu so I get a new insight and direction, instead of just recycling old, counterproductive ways of responding.

Hello Dear Dharmavidaya,

I got your question, thank you very much for it,  I did do it. I did put some information about our activities directly in english. Not translations to do for Elja. I must exercice my English and French so...

Love and hugh, NAB, Vajrapala

I have replied to three friend requests and this has worked but I have not had responses to my requests. Do you know if the system is working?

Thanks for the kind welcome, and I hope to reconnect as best we can!

Thank you David, was even nearly at the point of being brave enough to comment on the discussion...... but not quite!  A happy New Year to you.

Kindest Regards Valerie

Thank you _/|\_ I sent you a message but it has disappeared off the screen and I can't find how to view it so I don't know if you will receive it or not. In case not, thanks for the welcome, Dharmavidya :-)

Thanks for your warm welcome David! I am so looking forward to you receiving copies of Medicine Buddha/Medicine Mind, now available at http://www.soulsciences.net but I want to gift you and your centre with four copies. Where may I send them? to the address above?

Dear David  Thank you for asking me to join as a friend many months ago.  I can see you are a very busy person and I am most  impressed with all the physical work you are doing on that beautiful property in France.  I can relate to gum boots, tractors, earth planting and loads of work that seems never ending.  I work on my daughter's very neglected farm in Southern Tasmania with over 30 sheep and 800 heirloom apple tress for company. Pretty well in the same manner as you appear to be working on this property.  Not bad for a 65 year old lawyer who still works part time in law. I love it but what is missing is the sense of community particularly spiritual community with purpose.  I have been reflecting upon this and when the weeds grow up almost overnight and I see yet again a never ending full circle of work I realise that working with  (or against nature) this way is in fact a chore unless you are sharing with and interacting emotionally and spiritually with like minded people.  If you are doing the latter, then whatever you do is not a chore as you are getting the benefit of connecting with other humans.  Which is pretty much why we are here for isn't it ? In this sense I see that all our work regardless of what it may be, to be truly meaningful is better done in pure love and intent with and for others, then for the purpose of having a well organised and controlled environment. 

So bring on chaos mother nature as I have decided to lay  down my tools and 'list of things I must do yet again on my own' and order David's latest book which is winging its way to me right now through an order placed on 'amazon'.  

Kind regards

Thanks for the invitation Dharmavidya,

Hope all goes well - 2013 already feels like an exciting year.

Hi David,

Many thanks for the invitation to the Persephone spring gathering - I like the idea of this with its archetypal resonances, but have decided to stay in Jersey that weekend as our local Zen group's new monk is coming from Throssel for his quarterly visit.

I hope it goes well!

Best wishes, Mark

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 6 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…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
