I hope you find what you seek.

Now, if you're in Morgantown now... You're not too far from Pittsburgh or Washington, DC to find a teacher of Vajrayana. Most of us have to travel for the teachings at some point.

Hello Erin

No man rushes for the evening ferry
Of the storm ahead everyone is weary
To Dharma Wheel you came from abroad
You'll be loved by our great Lord.
Here you'll find many a friend
Who'll shine rays without an end.

WELCOME to Dharma Wheel Erin. It is my belief that love borne of compassion is ultimately genderless. You do not have to have gender to feel sad when people suffer or happy when they're glad. I happen to be a woman in this life's form, but I have many women friends who started off different than they felt. Now they are happier kinder loving-hearted for their choices.

But it was not easy.

Remember nothing worthwhile ever is. May your hardship bring you liberation by showing you where the heart of your joy lies. And I promise you in return I will strive to remember that too when I forget. All joy is borne through the birth canal of change.

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy
