This is my first time delving into Theravada specifically. Most of what I have read discussed general beliefs and the story of Shakyamuni Buddha. I finally got the chance to research several traditions and find myself liking Theravada. I live in Arkansas and am disabled, so finding in-person instruction and discussion is near impossible. Earlier this year, I earned 3rd degree in Reiki which has helped greatly with meditation and visualization. I'm looking forward to continuing my journey here.
