  • Re: Starting a sangha

    Williams! I just spent a night there, on my drive from NM out to California--charming little town! I was impressed! Will probably stop there on my next trip, too. Lodging is cheaper than in Flagstaff. Good luck! You might advertise it in Buddhist circles in Flagstaff, if you decide to take the plunge. There may be students there from Williams, or people may have friends in the area.

    Totally off the subject, but I am sooo ready for green chile season!!!

  • Re: Starting a sangha

    I am attempting to start a Sangha/sangha with guidance from the Thich Nhat Hanh foundation, using their New Sangha Handbook. There's a Tibetan monastery in Chino Valley which is about an hour away, so that's not really an option for me. Williams is a very small, old fashioned Christian/conservative town (lots of Donald Trump supporters) so I don't even know if this will be able to happen, but I'm going to try!

  • Re: Buddhism as the science of the mind.

    I came to Buddhism through science. I had been reading books about physics and quantum theory (books written for curious laypeople) when it suddenly dawned on me that what I had read about Buddhism seemed compatible with quantum theory. I did some more research and next thing you know I had read a dozen or so more books by various monks and had a daily meditation practice!
