  1. Good afternoon,

    I am really enjoying your shows. I download them on my MP3 player and listen to them in the car. The music you choose for the show is really inspiring. Is there a possibility to download these songs? Do you by any chance have a list of the wonderful songs you have chosen?

    warm greetings from Holland,
    Monique de Jong

  2. Another cracker! Thanks so much to you and Karen for the wonderful pod-casts and to William for the brilliantly written, and read books (I agree with Karen, he has such a wonderful voice). Looking forward to the next lecture and the next instalment of Buddhism and The Science of Happiness. Wishing you untold benefits and joyful challenges! All the best from Ireland.

    Madelaine is only 7 weeks old now, I might have typed 6 months instead of weeks. She FEELS like 6 months old, she is such a fortune baby! I appreciate the shout outs, and also heard that the Torch will be run by Taplow Court!? How exciting!
    Take Care,
