Lojong (7-point mind training) is my main companion through the day, but I'm also slowly, haltingly working through the Vajrayana special preliminaries (ngondro, right now the Refuge and Bodhicitta practice).
Selfishly, I would love to find some other person or persons that was interested in encouraging each other in practicing ngondro. But I should just come and sit with you guys some time. I'm also involved somewhat in getting the Maitreya Relic Tour to come to Denver and have an aspiration that a group of Pikes Peak area Buddhists would host the holy relics of the Buddha and other great masters here in COS. I have another idea, but I really think I should show up for a meeting before offering more suggestions, what do you think? ;-)
Been practicing meditation, Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism just since 2009 under the guidance of Khenpo Jigme in Crestone, CO. I live in Manitou Springs with my lovely wife, also a newby Tibetan Buddhist.
