Hello everyone

Postby paulbear » Thu Jan 03, 2013 11:01 am

I wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. My name is Paul and I'm an American now living in Italy. I've been searching and longing to have inner peace for most of my life. I've filled my life with "stuff" and more stuff. I've recently met a woman a few days ago at a holiday gathering and instantly I saw a peace and kindness in this woman that I've rarely seen. After talking with this woman I've decided to ask her the significance of her necklace (om) which later we've discussed her commitment to Buddhism. I know this is a first step but I thought I would reach out and ask how I can speak with a teacher or recommendations on good beginner books. Thank you for any information Peace Paul

Welcome Paul! I'm not sure where you are in Italy but I can recommend Pian di Ciliegi and Santacittarama as two great places to start your journey. May you find true peace and happiness! :heart:
