Teaching programme

A lot of the events I do are very popular, and fill up quickly. It is always worth putting yourself down on the waiting list, as people often have to cancel for one reason or another. 


I have written a number of books on Buddhist meditation, on some of its deities and symbols, and the deeper meaning and significance of Dharma practice.


Puja is a ritual, or ceremony,  that includes reflection, chanting and offerings that deepen appreciation of The Buddha and his teachings. A pujs is usually dedicated to a specific teacher or deity in the Buddhist traditon.

From time to time I write, edit or compile pujas to various figures, for use on retreats that I lead.  Here are links to three of the most requested ones, but there is a page dedicated to pujas

Morning verses
