    G'day @LadyEmmaE - welcome!

    I've been around for a little while but I just started posting yesterday. I began my meditation practice around 6 weeks ago and have found a few teachers in the modern Insight tradition that are teaching in a way that I believe I can understand pretty well.
    I'm 40 years old, married, 2 kids, 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 fish, and a hermit crab. I work as a legal assistant here in Maryland, USA. I'm a homeowner so my main hobby is my house and yard, but I'm also a visual artist and musician.

    It's become clear to me that my attachments and clinging are really damaging my well-being. I'm working on it and it feels pretty good to be proactive.

    Hello @ScottPen welcome to the forum.

    Hello NB forum, I thought that I would take a moment to intoduce myself. I practice in the Tibetan tradition and although I see that alot of people here follow the Theravada tradition I think that fundamentally dharma is dharma. Having said that, I look forward to the discussions!

    Hello to all, just joined after enjoying the discussions for a while, my name is Dawn and I follow a mainly Zen path, as they have the best poets and even a Way of poetry! Live in Northern Ireland with my partner and a lot of rain ☔ I write poetry and am an artist. Apart from that I'm reasonably sane.

    Yo! Welcome to all those unreasonably sane (does not seem so reasonable to be reasonable these days) 🙏🏽😉

    Watch out for non kosher lobster who has moved himself to the naughty corner - reserved for those who talk about themselves in the third person, give dharma a bad name and generally confuse those seeking clarity (allegedly) ...

    Welcome all Buddhist newbies Won and Whole ...

  • kandokando northern Ireland Veteran

    As Zen also seeks to confuse those who seek clarity - lobster is ok with me B)

    Hi everyone. I’m Finn the Human. (not really tho, although I am human) and I’m 26 and from Harrogate in England. I’m soon to be starting a PHD in religion and theology in Manchester, studying existentialist philosophy and linking it with the paths found in religion(s). I like religious mysticism. I started meditating properly in January, and now I don’t know why I haven’t always been meditating. Anyway, Hi.

    Hi, I'm Ron on here Rojeho. I joined a few days ago. I have been practicing for the little more than two years, immersing myself on everything I can find, which has of course only brought me to a fundamental understanding, but a great foundation. Nothing has deterred me from this journey. It only has enhanced me, now also closing in on being two years sober. I was lost and now I've found that no one is ever lost, but forever searching for the peace of the other shore. Thanks for having me and I look forward to your wisdom, experience, and knowledge.
    PEACE...
