Hello Caroline. Just been looking at the site and it is looking good. Had my Candles burning, while relaxing. I have not done that for a long time. Maybe this could be a new start, to a new Path-way for me. More relaxing, and less thinking....
Thanks Stephen. Yes, its been quite a hectic few hours on line getting it up and running. I realised once I started that it has to really be done oin one go as no one wants to join a half created site... but on the other hand creating a network without members is a bit odd. I hope this will be a new start for you and for us too. Enjoy the candles.
Good to join you again Caroline. Yup, still up for the chaplaincy - will fill out the application ASAP and will check travel arrangements for Leicester. Glad you like the photo - yes, I learnt with my first daughter how invaluable Lego can be!
I love to watch the discussions on forums like this. I hope to be able to learn from the collective mind we find here and that perhaps it will evoke some questions. I am very interested in watching discussions on the similarities between Psychotherapy and Buddhist perspective and refining my knowledge. It looks like the numbers are increasing quite quickly so there should be plenty opportunity.
Lovely to read your welcoming message Caroline. I am still getting my head around the layout of the site and what group to join, but I will persevere. Good to see the membership is growing fast, friends gathering!
hi Caroline best wishes for all that is happening there. I am in chiang mai having a busy week with the dentist. i fly home to melbourne sunday week. my com would not seem to let me upload a photo to Tariki, i will try again later.

Since the time of the Buddha people have looked to Buddhism as a source of salvation from their unhappiness and confusion. 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…
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!
