Here to learn

Good morning all! I'm new to Dhamma Wheel and new to Buddhism. My introduction to even the idea pursuing of Buddhism came in the form of a phenomenal yoga class which I attended for the work out, and have returned to over and over again for the spiritual lift. I've dabbled online, researching Buddhism and purchasing several books/ audio books on the history and meditation (Getting Unstuck, The Art of Mindful Living, Reflections on Meditation: A Guide for Beginners, and Buddha in Blue Jeans) but I am looking for more. More knowledge, more to practice, more understanding, more relief from suffering, more kindness and more direction. I'm excited to explore, and if anyone has suggestions as to best places to start (exploring the forums or exploring Buddhism in general) please feel free to point me in the right direction.

Hi Camala,

A life transformation led me to Yoga also, which led to mediation, which led to a Buddhist Meditation Retreat, which led to Buddhism for me. What a relief it was to know there is a solution to my dissatisfaction in life. The path is challenging but rewarding. This I already know!

Best of luck and Mega Metta to you!

Eamonn
