A few weeks ago we had the good fortune of having William Woollard, Matt MacMillan and Karen and myself sat around our kitchen table. We read two lovely experiences about relationships with mothers, one from two sisters in India, Bipasha van der Zijde & Bishaka Dalvi. The other experience was from Kelvin Lam. We swapped stories and experiences and played music from the Podsafe music network including, Levi Blues by the Dala Girls, Mine Again by Black Lab and Yael Naim with New Soul. The editing took some time and I was able to get the file ready to the digital work on the plane to Brisbane, where when we land I hope to post online! Thank you very much everyone for the many birthday wishes you were kind enough to send and for all your good wishes about our forthcoming move to Vancouver. We are continuing to study hard and have started writing the lecture for the next show, so bear with us as we embark on the next crazy adventure. I think its about time we shared an experience of how we have done this, what do you think?

We are back with another show! Tonight we have William Woollard reading Chapter 11 of his great book, Buddhism and the science of happiness.
Also we have an experience from the wonderful Steve Sant (picture of both of us in the artwork for this show!) and music from the Podsafe Music Network. We play two songs from the band, Black Lab. You might want to turn it up, and some of you might want to turn it down for their tracks, Broken Heart from their album Passion without a Trace and from the album See the Sun, Without You!
Shoutouts and chat from Karen and Jason. Thank you so much for listening. Have a wonderful week wherever you are.
We are back with another show! On tonights show we are very lucky to have a wonderful talk by Howard Hill from London in the UK!
We have an experience from Chris Yearley in Cyprus and the usual shoutouts!
Thank you to everyone who encouraged and supported Jason during his recent trip to Austin and Sacramento. Your emails and support are a constant encouragement. Have a wonderful week!
Tonight’s show is a bit of an experiment! For some time now we have had a lot of requests from listeners to provide support for the level 2 study courses that are taking place in Europe at the moment. This study will culminate in an exam in mid November for those who want to take it. William Woollard has also had many requests for support in this activity, so we have got together to produce a special edition show!
The exam consists of 5 sections, A, B, C, D and E. Each section has a number of questions. In the exam you will be asked one question from each section. On this podcast, William has prepared an answer for every question. It is NOT a model answer but the kind of answer that William would make based upon the study material provided. Remember the questions require you to use the study material rather than your existing knowledge.
If you are not a member of SGI in Europe at the moment but you would like to follow along, you can hop over to this site and download the study material we are looking at! Remember you need to look for the Grade 2 material.
If you are doing the Grade 1 study course, you still might find value in listening to the show as both Grade 1 and Grade 2 share the same questions in Section E about the Priesthood.
In between all of this study material, we have still found time for some music. On tonight’s show we play a wonderful track by Black Lab called Lonely Boy and for the second time on the show Great Day by the amazing Jody Gnant. Music courtesy of the Podsafe Music Network
Thank you for downloading the show! We have a great show coming up in 2 weeks so keep an eye out for it! Thank you as well for all your support.
Well we have a bit of an extravaganza for you this week! Kicking off the show is William Woollard who completes the second half of Chapter 1 from The Reluctant Buddhist. Karen reads a truly inspiring contribution from Cindy Woodland from Canada! We have more shoutouts that cross the globe and we attempt to answer a question about how we as parents interest our children in Buddhist Practice.
Keep a look out for a special show coming out next week. William Woollard has put together some great study material surrounding the Level 2 Study Exam that is taking place in Europe in November.
Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to the show, for writing to let us know how you feel about about it, for your encouragement on Facebook and for the great comments on the website. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you! Have a wonderful week.
