Hello everyone, my name is Cath. I live near Nelson at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. I live with my husband in a home-built mud brick house on our five acres of land. We try to live simply, without the trappings of modern life that many people expect. We make use of technology where appropriate, but try to make good use of resources and not waste anything.
I came to the eight-point program in 2003, shortly after we got our first computer. I had tried two other paths, which were not right for me, but I was still interested in meditation and was looking for a teacher. I was playing around with various blogs and websites and randomly contacted a complete stranger who was a member of the eSatsang. This provides online spiritual companionship for people like myself who can't get to a physical group.
I now see this as an act of grace.
