Profile Information

Introduce yourself
I am a practising Pureland Buddhist and would very much like contact with any other Purland practitioners living in East Anglia. I've visited Buddhist House many times and attended some wonderful retreats there.
I have been running a "loosely Buddhist" Mindfulness group at my home near Colchester for about 2.5 years and have just been made redundant from a wonderful job as a Wellbeing Mentor at the University of Essex, where I worked for 4 years. I hope to be able to continue to use mindfulness in my work, as it is an essential tool for coping with 21st century life. It has really changed my life for the better.
I'm a big fan of Buddhafield and all things "alternative". I am passionate about wildlife, my dog Marnie, nature and our essential earth connection.

Are there things you would like to see Tariki doing or want to know more about?

In the modern age, psychotherapy has become a route which many people choose to help them face and move beyond their personal suffering. Not surprisingly many Western therapists tend to gravitate towards Buddhist ideas and, conversely, Buddhists are often interested in exploring how their faith…

Running Tide Article

I wrote this article for Running Tide back in January but it didnt get published and as Running Tide has only just come out, things had obviously moved on. I'm putting it up here because it seems like a pity to waste a good article - or even a mediocre one!
