About Me (tell us a little bit about yourself):
I created this site in 2008. Now there is Facebook and other ways to connect online but back when we started there was not. After meeting an SGI Fortune Baby and traveling with her meeting other inspiring SGI members and created this site for us all to stay in touch.

It has grown a lot since then and I appreciate your support and participation.
Why do you desire to join Pls answer fully. DO NOT leave blank

I received my Gohonzon in August of 2003 and created this community shortly thereafter for SGI Members to meet and support each other in their practice.

This site is an excellent opportunity for kosen-rufu, and I invite you here in that spirit. Feel free to add me as a friend or send me an email, I appreciate every message I receive, even if I can't reply right away.

About Chris Tinney

I am the host of the Up Close Podcast, bringing you inspiring stories and introduce you to thought leaders, activists, and social entrepreneurs making a real difference in the world. 

I am also the founder and Executive Director of, a 501c3 nonprofit helping the homeless.

I'm vegan. They say when a person becomes Vegetarian, they step into the flow that leads to Nirvana. I like that. I can't say I've reached Nirvana, but it feels great knowing I'm on a
path that brings me more joy every day and is compassionate. I do know that Network Marketing has been good to me.

They say the masters at the art of living make little distinction between their work and their play, their labor, and their leisure, their minds and their body or their love and their religion

They simply pursue their VISION OF EXCELLENCE at whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they're working or playing them they are always doing both!

There are no accidents!

Chris Tinney

I always love meeting positive, uplifting people and I'm thrilled you're here.
