A New Year
Happy new year to everyone! I hope that your holidays were both energizing and relaxing for you.
I am just getting back into the blog rhythm again, hence the absence of entries over the past week.
January 8 is the big “Buddhist Blog Swap (part 2)” initiated by Nate DeMontigny, author of Precious Metal. So, tomorrow will be all topsy-turvy in terms of where things are… I’ll have a post up on Home Brew Dharma, and the author of Zenfant’s home for dirty dharma will have an article here, among other happenings. Should be an interesting day!
See you then…
I've been practicing and studying the Buddha way since 1994, and exploring the question "What is engaged Buddhism?" since the late 90s.
As former executive director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, Turning Wheel, I had the honor of meeting and working with many practitioners of engaged dharma, including Roshi Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, Alan Senauke, and Robert Aitken Roshi.
I write about socially engaged Buddhism on my blog, "The Jizo Chronicles," as well as on the theme of personal and collective freedom on my website, "The Liberated Life Project." Through my Five Directions Consulting, I offer support to individuals and organizations who aspire to integrate awareness into their work.
Happy New Year to you too, Maia! I’m looking forward to a year of learning and growing with you.
