About the creator of this site: Mark McCabe’s first encounter with the dharma happened while in high school in NYC. “I was studying Walpole Rahula’s 1959 classic, What The Buddha Taught, with 3 guys named David in Central Park and we were surrounded by about 20 youths who threatened to kill us and take our bikes. We had just discussed the concept of non-attachment and ”letting go,” and without much objection, our bikes were all stolen, we were not harmed, and we continued on with our investigations.” Since that time he has studied philosophy at Yale (B.A.) and UT Austin, worked as a professional firefighter and medic in Colorado, attended the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine (M.D.) and completed residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Washington. He currently practices General Internal Medicine at The Polyclinic, Downtown, 509 Olive Way, Seattle WA 98101. Telephone: 206-329-1760. His practice is currently open to new patients.
