Shamar Rinpoche Chenrezig empowerment




So, that’s a picture of me with my teacher, Shamar Rinpoche, the 14th Shamarpa of the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism.

This picture is a big deal to me.




Since I took my blogging break I became a really serious student of the Dharma, and it’s been an incredible experience.  Very helpful, very beneficial in a direct way. I have a long way to go but I am already a healthier, happier, and more compassionate person.

This path is an astounding thing for me, and I will probably be talking a lot about my experiences here, just because it is such a big part of my life now.

I don’t know what that will look like yet, but I thought I’d at least give you fair warning, so you can spare yourself if this isn’t your cup of tea.



I hope that you are happy, and that you are loved, and that you get everything you want and nothing you don’t want.


so there.




and I miss my wife.
