This is my home. The door is open to all serious seekers. My role is firstly, to cherish and help develop this magical place and the people who come here to partake of its beauty and mystery and, secondly, to develop an international network of people associated with the work and ideas that develop here.
Thank you. Looking forward to exploring your website. I appreciate your generosity.
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!
