Hi everyone, I've already posted a few things but I thought I'd just introduce myself a little here.
I'm Ben from a small town surrounded by the beautiful countryside of Wales. I attend a Triratna Buddhist Community Centre in Cardiff twice a week, a meditation night and 'Sangha night' (meditation/puja/discussion.) There are no vipassana/Theravada groups in my area, but I have been very interested in Theravada practice for a while, and I feel I have a heart connection with it, my 'spiritual home.' Especially since I attended a weekend retreat with Bhante Aj. Sukhacitto at Amaravati at the end of last year.
I am a religious studies student, which is nice because I get to study Buddhism as part of that.
My interests include Pali chanting, music (mainly classical guitar) walks in the country and of course meditation
Thanks for having me
