Keep Going: The Journey Continues

One weekend ago today two years of Dharma study came to a close in order to begin the next step. Along with five other fellow classmates I was inducted as a Bright Dawn - Buddhist Lay Minister. The journey was and continues to be a beautiful one. 

I learned so much and grew in ways I did imagine. So thankful for the process and the invaluable knowledge  gleaned and on some levels a small amount of wisdom I have attained. Yes, I am not the same person who first began that Lay Minister course back in August 2010. In  December that year I took leave of the course because of life situation only to return to it the follow August of 2011.

Congratulations to all of my classmates.
