What is your relationship / experience with Buddhism, if any?

Yes - I have read Siddhartha and even the Jack Kerouac version ("Wake Up") as well as several texts from others - have been practicing meditiation for the last few years at home.

Which questions or topics would you like to talk about?

Practicing forgiveness and compassion for one-self - not being so critical and judgemental. How to catch Shenpa before it takes over my life.

Have you read the "About Us" page ? (



Hello - I have recently been reading Rinpoche and Pema Chodron and it all sounds great in concept but it feels like I take 5 steps forward and 7 steps backwards in attempting to practice.
