Really, Ben, you all have created a wonderful space. I'm here thanks to a personal invitation from Retro, otherwise i never would have found the location. I sent that info on to bukowski and a few others inviting them over. I would strongly encourage you all to send personal invitations to dhamma friends who you think might benefit from the community here, and have something positive to add. A lot of non-Theravadan Buddhists we know would very much enjoy the company and conversation here I think, but may be a little hesitant about coming over and posting unless personally invited. For most actually there is no other way to find out about the Wheel's existance...!
"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
