A hello and a request

Hello everyone,

I had some problems logging in, so I've changed my username from Dazzle to Dazzlebling.

Retro has very kindly given me permission to post this request. Thank you, Retro!

I'm a female offline practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism and I opened my own website in November with the help of a friend.

http://www.buddhismwithoutboundaries.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The group is for practitioners of the main Buddhist traditions and anyone else who's interested. My aim was to provide a friendly environment for discussion and resources which was free from the squabbles and unkindness I have been saddened to see in some internet groups (see code of conduct for more details)

I was wondering if there's anyone here who has some experience and study with offlineTheravada groups who might be able to find a little time to call in and share some of their knowledge and understanding at BWB occasionally? I have created a Theravada forum but my own knowledge has been mostly limited to reading the online teachings of the late Ajahn Chah and his pupils, which I have enjoyed tremendously.

Thank you so much for reading my message.

With kind wishes,

Dazzle
