This website is a gift for the sangha, with the aspiration that all of us have the tools to prepare well, and to be able to care for each other more deeply, with a greater level of confidence and skill.

We are currently working on the translation of the website. We will keep adding more information, and are working on making pdf’s for print out available soon.

Are you ready? is not only a website! There will be special trainings to support students, instructors, and carers worldwide starting in the autumn 2010.

Would you like to contribute?
