Hi all! My name is Leo and I'm grateful to be here. I recently retired from the work-force after spending many years as a psychotherapist (LMFT). I lead a weekly mindfulness meditation group at my Buddhist temple, doing so as a lay volunteer. I look forward to learning from the various resources found here, including the training materials, the seminars, and the community.

Hello Gillian. I have been practicing Buddhism seriously for approximately 14 years. I currently devote one to two hours daily to my formal practice, including meditation and study. Two of my favorite teachings are the Satipatthana Sutta and the Anapanasati Sutta wherein Sakyamuni Buddha provides guidance on meditative practices. I deeply appreciate how these teachings can be applied to our present-day challenges during these chaotic times.

That's great that you've found more free-time to focus on self-growth and purpose. I imagine challenging as well depending upon your circumstances, but it must be nice to have the extra time to slow down and turn inwards.

And sorry, I didn't catch your name and can't tell from your email.
