  1. Hi Tom! I can’t wait to continue the path here. Wherever you be, I be.

    You’re like the Dharma, the place to always keeping coming back to.

    Love and aloha, a fellow acronym lover,

    1. Thanks so much Daria for your incerdible enthusiam, dedication to the Path, and support of what we do in Aloha Sangha over these many years. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your take on things..I always find your perspectives to be stimulating and original. Thanks so much, Daria.

  2. Dear Tom,
    I truly miss attending your Wednesday sessions, but I no longer live in Manoa and am at an age where I have difficulty driving at night.
    Perhaps when daylight extends to 7:30 pm I will be able to attend your inspiring sessions once again.

    Best of Wishes to You and the Family,

    1. Hi Ruth,

      Thank you so much for participating! I have very warm memories of the time spent with you at our home.

      Wishing you all the best…


  3. Hi Tom: Nice to hear from you again after about a year absence. I am glad you have a new website. Are you still offering meditations in Honolulu?
    I have been living on Maui for six years now and am in Lahaina. We have thousands of whales here now and the energy is wonderful.
    I would like to see you again and if I come back to Honolulu I will contact you.
    I am just being in awareness nothing to do. I Am fully retired and its great. How is your family?
    Aloha, love and light

    1. Hi Steve- great to hear from you. Life sounds amazing for you there on Maui. Yes, we still have our group get-togethers in Honolulu, on the first and third Wednesdays 6 to 7:30 PM. Let me know if you are ever in town and I’ll email you our address..will eventually make a page on this site about those. Sounds great, just living in awareness with nothing to do…working on that too! Take care.

  4. Tom, I wholeheartedly appreciate the commonsense, down to earth approach — a lived buddhism, a lived spirituality whatever the stripes, whether Christian, Buddhism or otherwise will always resonate with me, rather than a neck up approach. Recall in a lecture with a visiting buddhist teacher, something that struck me…to make the “dharma your best friend.” I really like that. Opens up my mind and heart. aloha my friend. Thanks for creating ripples.
