About Bootcamp Buddhist

Bootcamp Buddhist is all about getting you ready for the real world application of Buddhism. I will be blogging about all the basic tenets of Buddhism and how they apply to you everyday. Whether you are a serious “Buddhist” or have a passing interest I am sure you will find something of use.

Also soon you can look forward to the Bootcamp Buddhist Podcast and website. So keep an eye out here and I will keep you up to date.

About the Blogger:

My name is Warren Reilly from Galway, Ireland. I am a husband, father and Buddhist practitioner. Having studied Buddhism for a number of years I completed the Asian Classics Institute (www.acidharma.org) formal study courses about 5 years ago. Since then I have continued my studies with my Lama Holy Ven. Lobsang Chukyi one of ACI’s senior teachers. I have also had the benefit of receiving  instruction from many other wonderful teachers to whom I am eternally grateful. To ensure I continue to have the good karma to see myself receive teachings I have decided it is time I taught others. So I am currently giving public classes every week in Oranmore, co. Galway, Ireland. However not everyone can make it to the classes, I hear Timbuktu is a long commute. So along with the in person classes I will be running this Blog and in the near future I will be launching a Podcast. The Podcast I hope will also bring you some other truly wonderful teachers and some very different perspectives.

      Hi Christine,

      Delighted you are so interested. Keep an eye on the site and hopefully you’ll find the upcoming podcast useful and interesting. We do have an active group here in Galway and I will post about upcoming events. And you’d never know we might spread out towards Kerry in the future.
