Wesley - you don't have to see the teacher every week or every month. Maybe a couple of weeks a year would be good. Best wishes. Andrew

Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.

It is also possible to study on your own and then seek a teacher. This is an advice The Dalai Lama gave. No time is then lost. One book which can possible offer help regarding the root of samsara is "to see yourself how you really are". He there explains about impermanence, dependent origination, emptiness and gives this in a way for contemplation and reflections.

Very nice. Of course there are others as well.
