Hello from Arizona

Postby StaceyH » Fri Dec 23, 2016 5:09 pm

Hello,

I've been studying Buddhism on and off for several years. Bhante Yuttadhammo's videos have been a large part of my most recent studies. I hope to attend my first retreat towards the beginning of next year. I practiced briefly with a local Zen zendo, but found that Theravada is closer to where my mind is more peaceful. I have all respect for any path that encourages Love and Kindness, even if it isn't one I walk on.

I continue to struggle with the concepts of rebirth and other supernatural aspects of Buddhism, but I have hope that my doubting mind can find peace at some point. Joining this forum is part of the process, at least in theory. :smile:

I was born into the LDS faith, but left that path early and since have been admittedly timid to rely on faith.
I hope to learn with others and let my doubts be changed with practice and knowledge.

I wish you all a useful Reality and as much peace as is possible.
With Metta,

Stacey

To practice is to know your defilements,
