Hi all. My name is John and I follow the teachings of the Buddha in the thich Naht hanh lineage. I'm 66 and look after my wife who has advanced multiple sclerosis. I also work as a volunteer at our local hospice day centre and have recently started a men's support group there. 4yrs ago I started a sangha which we hold in our home which is a blessing.

Namaste John
