The four of us around the kitchen table

November 24th, 2012

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?


  1. Soo exciting! Have been looking forward to this one 🙂 Thank you!

  9. Greetings from Rome, Italy! Yesterday I met with some fellow Buddhists to do preparation for our next women’s division meeting and we decided we would discuss “the relationship with our parents” as the next topic and that we would also develop the concept of gratitude which is so important to that discussion. Then I come home and started searching the internet for any study material related to this topic and found this podcast which discusses just that! Loved it. A huge thank you to all those who participated in this.
