    Hi Doug!Really enjoyed this vlog and found the workshed podcast very interesting also. I’ve just downloaded the insight timer so will see how that goes. If there is a way you could merge the vlog and the study posts,that may work well. By which I mean recording your experiences with aspects of Dharma and Buddhism in general….how it effects you on a day to day basis/in general. So ‘What it is’ and ‘How it effects me’ kind of thing.

      Thanks for the kind comment, Patrick. Yes, merging the two is one idea for down the line, we’ll have to see how things go. As it is, I imagine the two can’t help but overlap from time to time anyway.

      But for now I kind of like the idea of keeping them kind of separate, so folks who are interested in the more vloggy things will know where to find them, while folks who really only want to learn about dhamma but aren’t interested in aspects of my personal life can avoid having to listen to them! 😄
