DhO Hacked and Upgrade


ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

Hi, I'm Bruce :-)

I have been doing Nei Gung (aka Chi Gung) for about 8 years, but I am new to insight meditation. Had my first hard jhana last night with the candle flame meditation, I think.

I live on the Banks Penninsula about an hour and a half drive from Christchurch on the South Island of New Zealand, on a lovely 10 acre block that we are slowly turning into a small retreat center (general, not just meditation, unless I get stream entry and all elitist <grin>).

Drop me a line if you're in the neighborhood!

Hi Bruce and anyone else in New Zealand:

My name is Alex, and i live in Auckland, NZ. I've been practicing insight meditation for a couple of years and actualism for about six months. If you're in the neighborhood and want to hang out and talk about those practices or awakening in general, send me a message.
