Hello to everyone from Canberra Australia,
Just a quick post to introduce myself on the site. I am exploring this, after having 'Tao Bums' recommended to me by my close friend 'The Cloud Recluse'.
I have very loosely described myself as a Taoist for many years, (although I do not feel limited by this 'label' in any proscribed / exclusive sense of the term), and have also explored and practised some shamanism (feeling that it very comfortably compliments my Taoist outlook), as well as some limited dabbling in voodoo - a bit of a delicious melange of beliefs really!!
I have had some very 'successful' and intense experiences in these areas (and a few others), and it frustrates 'The Cloud Recluse' no end, that I do not spend more time in some kind of regular practise. He tells me that I get results easily and quickly, and on a few occasions we have had to tone something back as I have had some overly strong (and sometimes undesirable) effects.
I would love to spend some more time in practise and exploration, but often don't find the time / energy (plus sometimes I'm just slack!!) What can I say - I'm a working sole Mum, so I tend to have a pretty busy (chaotic, frantic!) life.
Anyway, I'm glad to be here, and I look forward to chatting and learning.
Have a great day
