I'm a North American living in Mexico. I've been practicing Insight meditation for a few years now with teachers who have done teacher training at Spirit Rock in Northern California. While in Mexico, I've also been studying a little bit of Tibetan Buddhism.
I came across this forum while looking for advice on how to find some specific teachings of the Buddha (having to do with social justice) and felt compelled to join. I miss my Theravada Sangha back home and am happy to discover this forum!
