What is your interest in Amida-shu
Am in harmony with much of what they teach.

What is the nearest town to where you live? If in UK, please give first half of your postcode. Thank you.
I'm a member of the Amida Mosaic sangha in London Ont. Perhaps you already know this, but Dharmavidya is coming at the end of the month to facilitate some workshops and a retreat. Just wanted to pass that on, in case you would be interested. Here's the link: http://mosaicretreats.ca/
Sorry to keep writing but the other email I have for you doesn't seem to work and I am in need of a response in regard to whether or not you still want to host the Braziers for a retreat day on Sunday January 17th? If you are no longer interested I would like to invite them to give a day long Pureland retreat. If this is the case I will heed to find an appropriate space sooner than later. Please consider this and write when you can.
I hope this email find you well. Maiku, I am wondering if you are still interested in having the Braziers to your church to speak on Engaged Buddhism on January 17th? If so, will it be open to the public? Are you thinking of a day long event? I am hoping they might extend their visit and do some teaching on Pureland Buddhism as well. (We've invited them to stay at our home for as long as they like.) My husband and I had the good fortune of spending two weeks at Amida France this summer and came home quite inspired.
Please let me know your thoughts. Also, would it be helpful to get together for a coffee?
I was saw about you that you holding dual ordination. Isn't you journing or riding puting you legs in the two boat. If the boat is go trough a way then will no face problems but if the boath does not go......Than what you be......
I would like to welcome you to be join my site and read the comments.
I thought it time to introduce myself. I'm actually shocked we have never come across one another. I too live in London, ON and have been teaching the Dharma here for 10 years. I have been studying with Amida Trust on and off again for 8 years. I too am ordained, firstly in a Chrsitian tradition (I was the chaplain for 10 years at UWO) and now as a Buddhist. I'd love to learn more about what you do and who you do it with. What a small world.
