Profile Information

About Me (tell us a little bit about yourself):
I am a 3rd year Naturopathic medical student at National College of Natural Medicine; changing my career after working as a computer programmer, database administrator, and technical analyst with insurance companies for the past 12 years.

I am new to SGI and Nichiren Buddhism in general and received my Gohonzon on April 28th, 2009. I have my classmate, Melissa, to thank for introducing me to Nichiren Buddhism - thank you Melissa!

I love reading and books, hiking (serious hiking - like 10 to 20+ miles), gourmet cooking, B-movies, computer programming, working for environmental causes, and herbalism - I enjoy going out into the woods and identifying plants and using them as medicine when necessary.

But most of all - my calling is to heal each and every individual on this great planet of ours. True healing is not only physical, but also emotional and spiritual healing. It takes into account the "Vis" which is a term Naturopaths use for the life force. One can think of "Vis" in exactly the same way as Qi or Prana.

Time is too short - we live in the scary parts of the latter days. It is time to have everyone spread compassion and healing in this world, it is way overdue. This is my calling, I MUST help my fellow human as well as all living things on this planet.

I now know I am not a voice crying alone in the wilderness, there are others who believe like I do.

Now is the time for all of us to have COURAGE to change ourselves as well as the status quo of the planet, it won't be easy, but it must be done.
