I've been really appreciating that TDBs community has come a long way over the years (despite whatever difficulties along the way). The quality, depth, and variety of internal arts knowledge, practice, experience represented here in a wide variety of members... all of that has really improved over a decade plus. Recently, in public and private conversations ... interacting with members that have been and are continuing serious deep authentic into ... I hate to even list for want of not leaving something out, but half dozen or more really distinct paths... often connected to seriously groovy teachers (some well known, others hardly known). Wow, what a resource.

Thank you o great founder Sean for making this site possible so many years ago. 

And may I remind people that Sean was the single handed moderator for many a year back when these computational devices were coin operated and the internet was the wild wild west. :).

Push hard to get better, become smarter, grow your devotion to the truth, fuel your commitment to beauty, refine your emotional intelligence, hone your dreams, negotiate with your shadow, cure your ignorance, shed your pettiness, heighten your drive to look for the best in people, and soften your heart. A creed from Pronoia

Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experience the loss of soul. Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves. ~ Gabrielle Roth

Other sites seem to either be new-age slop, or highly focused down one [style of] path. Here you get serious cultivation, threads on qigong dipping into prostrastion or whatever in a meaningful way...

If you actually want to cultivate, and have the opportunity to go beyond the views and practices of whichever path you're focused on, this is the place!
