Hello to All

Postby Dr Meercat » Wed Jul 07, 2010 3:46 am

Greetings,

I started getting into Buddhism when I was in intensive pysch outpatient care about 18 mos. ago. Part of therapy was mindfulness meditation as laid out for the medical profession by John Cabot-Zinn. It was very difficult to do & I"m still struggling to do much more than daydream 90% of the time.

Over time I've started meeting with Buddhists in town. This has been going on for about 8 mos. or so. I have so much to learn.

I'm also into the 12 step recovery programs (i.e, AA/etc.).

I look forward to learning from ea. of you.

Welcome!

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

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.
