Hello from Louisiana

Postby klasikos » Wed Aug 01, 2012 6:43 pm

Hi everyone,

I am a 25 y/o male from Southern Louisiana. I have a B.A. in International Studies and I'm currently working on my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling. I've been very interested in Buddhism since a teenager and have done a fair share of meditation through my own personal practice. I've sat in on Shambhala and Vipassana groups here and there, but I definitely don't have a formal commitment to any tradition (yet). I look forward to getting to know everyone here and to learn and share with you all!

Thanks, David! I do think it is a good field! I am also quite interested in the relationship between Buddhism and Western psychotherapy, so that topic might come up at some point on a relevant board.

Welcome Klasikos!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5
