About Barry Daniel

I live in the Lake District in the UK where I run a guesthouse with my partner Kate and my cat Manuel. I enjoy painting, hillwalking, reading, visiting and entertaining friends, T’ai Chi and playing the guitar. I’m engaged to a certain degree in the local community, as a volunteer with Samaritans and I’m a fairly active member of the local Green party. I’ve had a relatively intuitive sense of the Middle Way most of my adult life but it found a greater articulation and a practical direction through joining the society. It’s also been interesting and great fun engaging with other people with a similar outlook. My main contribution to the society is conducting the podcast interviews, something that gives me a lot of satisfaction and that I’ve learnt a lot from.

  1. Hi Robert and Barry,
    I have just listened again to this wonderful conversation, I was p[leased not to have been overwhelmed with scientific facts butit left me with a better understanding about the concept of provisionality in the Middle Way. So much that was said about how to be open to ideas and not clinging to a rigid dogma – on any subject, it chimed with my own thoughts (confirmation bias I suppose), and how being intuitive and creative helps and also the benefits gained from being alone at times to mull over things in general.
