Small, small world: Another Buddhist Pin@y

Been meaning to post this for a while, but my previous post on Buddhism in the Philippines and a quick visit to Jean's Wild Radish blog finally prompted me. Funny, iSang also met someone I know from the community, Maiana Minahal, at a Deer Park retreat. I was supposed to be at that retreat, but changed my mind at the last minute. Hope to go next year if they do it again. It's Thich Nhat Hanh's Colors of Compassion retreat.

Rona -- we should get together some time and talk about all this.
Just got Jack Kornfield's After Ecstacy, the Laundry ; )) Very good. sorry I missed that (2nd!) retreat; but maybe next time.

Anyway, I'm getting Vipassana instruction here in Sta.Cruz

I bought Jack's 'Ecstasy/Laundry' book at that retreat too! I haven't read it yet though.

Yes, would definitely love to connect re: Buddhism, 'pinayism', babaylan, etc. Just connected with the iSangmahal blogger, name's Jon S.

Will email soon.
