Oct 12 - 18

Autumn, week 4
"Dharma didn't just tell me about love and compassion; it provided a method to become love and compassion....Silence became the medium in which I was reborn into a sense of happiness and contentment....In the end my movements have cost me. They have cost me my fear of becoming the person that I want and need to be." --Lama Rod Owens
