The last few days have seen me once more dug into the depths of the little black box which has been my companion for the last two and a half years - strange how 'friendly' such a black plastic box can get to feel - my window on so many friendships.
This time i am in process of revising the Buddhist psychology distance learning programme. With the various changes this year, I have had to move files from one site to another and moving them has not proved easy - endless copying and…Continue

Too often we are too stuck in ways of seeing: how we perceive this world and our lives. This piece attempts to encourage a different way of seeing – an attempt significantly influenced by an article from www.ecodharma.com - and inspiration from Buddhist teachings and radical politics such as the Occupy movement.

To everyone who has requested to be my friend--Karen, Stone, David, Hussam and anyone else who might have made a request--I haven't been refusing or neglecting you, I simply haven't been able to access my acount. The computer drone that calls itself Lisa wasn't much help, either. So I have had to start up a new account, but it's still under my old nom de plume. I hope to be in touch with you all soon!

With all the uncertainties of the last year I have been taking a break from hospital chaplaincy so my CRB has lapsed. Now at last life has slowed down enough to get started again.

Today was the second day of our chaplaincy training course. As part of the Buddhist Healthcare Chaplaincy Group I have been involved in the inter-Buddhist process of establish an endorsing body for Buddhist healthcare chaplains within the UK for more than ten years, and more recently have been involved in devloping training for those interested in the process. This weekend was the start of the most substantive course which I have been involved in teaching on the topic.

Yesterday the queen visited Leicester. Rather to my surprise I found myself sitting in Leicester Cathedral a short distance from her majesty among the faith leaders who had been invited to the commemoration service for her diamond jubilee.
Sixty years is a long time to be doing any job, and, as I sat, musing on the feisty elderly woman who sat there on the old carved…Continue
