Good Evening Brian
Thank you so much for your reply. I've been enjoying the forum this evening. I appreciate everyone who posts. It really helps someone such as myself greatly.
I live in West New York, NJ which is the general area of Northern New Jersey. I am close to New York as well.
I have been very drawn to Ch'an (Zen) Buddhism but I am very open to the study, understanding and practice to all of it.
I am open to experience all that I can learn.
Thank you again for your help and response.
