  • Thank you. Looking forward to exploring your website. I appreciate your generosity.


  • 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.
  • Hi Dharmavidya
    Please put my name down for any new Amida discussion group as per email.
  • 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.

  • How do I receive your podcasts! By the way all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well .. not always so...

  • Many, many thanks for the invitation and welcome!

  • Gracias David por la bienvenida. Saludos.

  • Thank you for welcoming me to Eleusis.

  • The pleasure to meet was on my side, and it is a delight to stay in contact.

  • 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!
