I am a Buddhist aged 63, married for forty-two years with three grown-up children and two grandchildren. I look for commonality in all schools and traditions and usually find them!!

How did you hear about Tariki?
What is your involvement in Tariki?
None at present
Are you a student or have you studied with us?
No, not yet.
