BUDDHISM FOR WESTERNERS: From San Francisco, California, in person or remote tutoring and guidance in Buddhist teachings, from introductory fundamentals though centuries of development and elaboration

Methodology

A student of Eastern thought and religions from my parents' since grade school, in the past fifteen years I have practiced, studied and explored Buddhism in a more dedicated way. My project with SuperProf is to provide a safe resource to aid (mostly but not restricted to Westerners) penetrate and navigate into this deep psychology, from beginners to intermediates. Flexible to address specific areas or general guidance.

Background

Introduced to Eastern thought with the "Fourth Way", and through "Science and Sanity", Existentialism, Jungian Analysis, and lastly for the last fifteen years deeper study and practice of Buddhism, across several shools, and Thereavada and Mahayana.

I have a masters degree in systems management and work with computers most of the time. I have attended residential retreats, and had the pleasure of retreats with some leading American Buddhist Teachers, and Asians. I lived in Japan for 18 months.
