hello, I'm a beginner, fresh from Austin, Texas.
read some of the major Taoist texts in college, but have only more recently been drawn to esoteric Taoism and actively trying to develop a practice. i'd occasionally drop into local Buddhist centers but felt myself craving more.
my introduction to much of this was through reading the Tao of Craft and speaking with a couple friends. I would like to learn more about the I Ching & start a Qi Gong practice.
I see Flying Phoenix Qigong and Spring Forest recommended a lot here, so I may look into that.
part of my journey includes health issues that I've been dealing with neck pain as well as allergies/chronic fatigue.
outside of that my interests are permaculture, weightlifting, technology futures, etc
