    I’ve been trying to work with Buddhism on and off for about 40 years, but fell foul of what seemed to be cults. Stephen Batchelor’s work has kept me in touch with the dharma, especially Buddhism Without Beliefs and on-line videos of he and John Peacock. Returning to their outputs recently proved timely, as I have spent six months undergoing tests for various cancers (so far free and clear). Oddly that proved a blessing in terms of allowing me to fully understand the basics: impermanence, etc. Equally, finding Jack Kornfeld’s gentle little book & CD on meditation has opened the door to getting back to some element of meditation practice. No longer seeking ‘nirvana’, whatever that is. Just getting on with living in a positive frame of mind. Now looking forward to seeing where the SBA might lead me.
