Welcome

Welcome to this website. It is a tributary of the big river of dharma linked with the simplybeing.co.uk website of the teachings of James Low and C.R.Lama.

You are invited to jump into the water, and as you splash, know that the droplets’ sun-glint rainbows are aspects of yourself.

There are infinite aspects to the dharma and if this does not speak to your current condition may you quickly find a stream to suit you… and if this stream and river should help you find your own way then any merit arising is dedicated to the welfare of all sentient beings.

Whichever way you go… the very best of luck!

Based near Exeter, and teaching buddhism and dzogchen, Wendy is a disciple of James Low and a teacher in the lineage of James Low and C. R. Lama.

The following advice is from the simplybeing  website: “According to the tradition, in order to bathe in the living stream of the dzogchen lineages, it is important to make steps to gain transmission from a living teacher and it is unhelpful to use the teachings for selfish purposes.”

This website contains some information and also bits and pieces… looking at the world through different dharma lenses including dzogchen.

If you would like to develop a greater understanding of the dzogchen view then one way to go would be to work your way through the Macclesfield talks on the audio section of the simplybeing.co.uk website, slowly allowing it to permeate through and through as the view is expounded.

Here is a list of links  to the audios and videos currently available in this set of teachings.

In the talk – ‘Dissolving conflict in life and death’ James mentioned the limitation on openness which can result from tensions held within the body. Sometime ago, on the radio, I heard someone saying they felt their jaw tighten in response to  some event. It got me wondering whether my jaw had ever felt really loose……

Teacakes – well… softness with a somewhat cloying sweetness – high-calorie comfort-food. These teachings, recorded this July at Emerson College, now available to listen or download – may be the perfect food for these troubled times – highly nutritious, softening, and… strangely slimming too!

Cheers! Here’s to sadness!

Some years ago someone who had been on Prozac for eight years came regularly to a group i was facilitating in mid-devon. She was put on the drug following the death of her young daughter and at a time when she herself was in an unsatisfying job. She had, since then, found more satisfying work and so we worked through…
